My love for indie films continues. The Savages is a story about a brother and sister who care for their elderly father. The family of three is uncomfortably dysfunctional. Laura Linney's character portrays what people feel. She is warm and caring. Philip Seymour Hoffman's character vocalises what most people think. Blunt and decidedly disconnected. Their father has dementia. This movie made me realise that I never want to faced with the decision to put either of my parents in a nursing home. It had some great shots of trees and the sky. It took me back to when my family and I would take long road trips. Loved the ending.
My advise, watch this movie and reflect on your own life. Enjoy.
