The Savages is an irreverent look at family, love and mortality as seen through the lens of one of modern life’s most bewildering and challenging experiences: when adult siblings find themselves plucked from their everyday, self-centered lives to care for an estranged elderly parent.

Not to be confused with Oliver Stone's batshit crazy drug film, this film is a very heartfelt drama about no matter how fucked up your family is you still have to take care of them. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney are exceptional in this.
I have to say that I like Hoffman and Linney a lot. I think they did a good job in acting. By the way, this movie makes me think about my grandparents and also my parents .. and .. me .. one day we are going to get old and .. what would happen to us when we're old, besides dying?
It's a worth watching blackcomedy/drama, which is a bit sleepy in the beginning but it turns pretty darn good in the next stages of movie. Realistic, strong, a bit morbid, but still positive and fulfilling.
