Funny and thoughtful

I'm experiencing similar events to the Linney and Hoffman's characters within my own family, so this film really hit home. The Savages subtle brand of humour and thoughtfulness make for a deeply funny, superbly acted film. I haven't seen Tamara Jenkins directorial debut 'Slums of Beverly Hills' but if it's half this good I won't leave it long.

A flick starring the great Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney is a must see in my book so I was definitely eager to watch this one. First of all, as expected, they both rocked their performances. I especially enjoyed Hoffman and his character who was basically a shabby egoistical jerk but Hoffman managed to make him complex and fascinating to watch anyway. On the other hand, even though I cou... read more

Description: It's almost impossible to describe The Savages in a way that makes it sound as richly engaging and enjoyable as it is. The story sounds bleak: Two unhappy siblings--Wendy (Laura Linney, You Can Count on Me) and Jon Savage (Philip Seymour Hoffman, Capote)--are forced to grapple with their dying father (Philip Bosco, Damages) as he slip ...

"Watched: 4/27-29/12 1st Viewing Thoughts: The perfectly selected cast make 'The Savages' tons better than it should be, considering the relatively basic story. Laura Linney performs better here than ever before, and alongside Seymour Hoffman she really shines. I laughed, I felt sadness, and I had myself a blast. Highly recommended dramedy. "

I especially enjoyed Hoffman and his character who was basically a shabby egoistical jerk but Hoffman managed to make him complex and fascinating to watch anyway. On the other hand, even though I could appreciate Laura Linney's performance, I thought her character was more pathetic and annoying than anything else and her married lover was even worse. Basically, they try to mix drama and comedy and it works pretty well but the whole thing never really takes off. The subject is interesting and they developped some nice ideas but it never really becomes spellbinding to watch. Still, the acting i” read more
