Savages-Movie-(R) 114 minutes

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney deliver unforgettable performances in this hilarious coming-of-middle age story from writer / director Tamara Jenkins. Until recently, all John and Wendy Savage (Hoffman, Linney) had in common was a lousy childhood and a few strands of DNA. But after years of drifting apart, they're forced to band together to care for the elderly, cantankerous father who made their formative "challenging." In the process, both of these aimless, perpetually adolescent forty-somethings may just, at long last, have to grow up! Released 2008, new to our library
