The Savages

A Movie Reel

The Savages: 7.5 out of 10.

I'm not capable of disliking a Philip Seymour Hoffman movie.  He's so good, his presence elevates a film.  He's definitely in my top five - the man can act.

Throw in a great Laura Linney performance, and you can't really screw it up.  "The Savages" is a little slow in parts, but overall a bittersweet film about a sister and brother who begin to care for their ailing father.

If you're interested, I once ranked my five favourite Philip Seymour Hoffman movies.
