BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

Leave your answer in the comment section. I’ll approve responses later in the day to give people a chance to respond without seeing any spoilers. This week’s riddle is a tough one, but don’t be discouraged. The riddle comes from a past episode of NPR’s Sunday Puzzle and was shared by Matthew Leal of San Francisco.

This week’s brain teaser: When you write down this country and its capital you will find hidden in consecutive letters the name of the movie that won an Academy Award for Best Picture in 1989. Name the country, capital, and film.

Hit me up if you want / need a hint!
