A Preview by
The Dude on the Right
So you get a couple of siblings, a brother (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and sister (Laura Linney), living their life's very separate from each other, only to get the phone call that their father, who pretty much treated them like crap in their younger days, isn't doing so hot anymore. Suddenly they have to come back together for their dad, who is losing it, doesn't seem to remember things, and thinks the nursing home they want to put him into is a hotel.

The trailer for "The Savages" shows a tear-jerker of a movie mixed with funny writing that will also make you laugh. The acting looks top-notch, and of course, in this time of year with releases from indie studios, well, you get talk of Oscar nominations, and for a lot of families you might also do a slight double take if you watch this movie and see your own family.

I'm not sure how wide this movie will open but it does look to have a lot of potential for being both poignant and funny. For me, in the bleakness that is usually late December/January movies, this looks like it might be a refreshing watch in heart of winter.

That's it for this preview! I'm The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
