Screening & Live Event
The Savages

Part of The Master: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Saturday, September 17, 2016, 5:00 p.m.

Introduced by Laura Linney

Dir. Tamara Jenkins. 2007, 113 mins. 35mm. With Laura Linney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Philip Bosco. Hoffman gave some of his best and most underrated performances in relatively low-budget independent films, such as Tamara Jenkins’s deeply moving and comical The Savages. Hoffman plays a self-absorbed Buffalo college professor who must team up with his sister, a struggling playwright, after their father’s mental health starts to deteriorate. As Manohla Dargis wrote in The New York Times, “There isn’t a single moment of emotional guff or sentimentality...the film caused me to periodically wince, but also left me with a sense of acute pleasure, even joy.
