The Savages

This film hit a little close to home as at this writing having a similar issues with my in-laws.  This is a fine movie and the acting by Linney and Hoffman is exactly what you would expect (oh I miss Hoffman).  It’s by no means a great film – I think What They Had is a far superior entry into this genre.
