The Savages

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney star as a pair of unsuccessful siblings who are suddenly burdened with caring for their long-gone father. Ancient and largely unspoken tales of abuse are pushed aside for more pressing burdens of adult diapers and senility. Finely observed moments of humanity and fragile humor lift what could have been a depressing look at life, death and regret. It's still not a cheerful story, but it is a very mature and sensitive told one. 113 minutes R.
