Our take

Sweeping the big Oscars® (Picture, Actor, Actress, Director & Adapted Screenplay), this moving and tumultuous classic is the quintessential portrait of American divorce in the 1970s. Like the couple’s child, we are caught in the middle, torn between the tremendous performances of Hoffman and Streep.
