I’m going to leave my comfort zone and both review and recommend a movie that I just watched. It has been out since Jan 2008, but under the radar. It is called “The Savages” staring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The title is deceptive. It isn’t a war story, not a cops and robbers, no monsters, not cowboys and Indians, not even aliens jumping out of someone’s chest. Savage is the last name of the family. It is about the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: aging and dying. Read the summary from the link below.
The details of the movie can be found on this link:
and it can be rented at the usual places like Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, and Netflix.
