The Savages

Tamara Jenkins’ The Savages was one of the most beautifully filmed movies I’ve watched in a couple of years. The cinematography by W. Mott Hupfel III was gorgeous – sometimes saturated, sometimes like a still-frame from a photographic camera. All of this was, of course, complemented by spectacular acting from Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The story was a little slow (and a little long), but I would recommend watching this to anybody with both an appreciation for dark humor and sympathy towards broken family relationships.
