Jon (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Wendy Savage (Laura Linney) find themselves taking care of their aging father, whom they haven't seen in years.
Hoffman and Linney both give great performances and have great chemistry. Tamara Jenkins wrote and directed The Savages, which I give her kudos for. The Savages is funny and sad in the right places. It's an appropriate movie for those who are going through the same thing.
My Rating: ****1/2
