From Back Cover:

-Thelma Adams, US WEEKLY

"In her consummately executed, irreverent drama The Savages, Tamara Jenkins achieves a rare storytelling feat: making us simultaneously laugh and cry. In what may evolve into a new genre, the coming-of-middle-age story, she has captured all the pain and misgivings that befall a pair of adult siblings, suddenly plucked from their very absorbed lives and forced to care for a parent who never much bothered to care for them..."
-Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival

My Comments:

I bought this dirt cheap when Blockbuster closed down, but didn't watch it until Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely death. It's a solid film with some very good performances, but is not exceptional. Probably more worthy of 3.5 stars than 3.
