I am now a complete fan of Philip Hoffman. The smirk is still there, but Capote has done to him what Leaving Las Vegas did to Nicolas Cage. Only, the real good thing is that he is sticking to the new ground and not going aimless like Cage.
The Savages is his latest 5 star performance. Uncommon topic for a US mainstream movie. Very relevant — Grown up kids living far in cities going through mid life crisis of their own. And not knowing what to do with lonely aged sick parent. The movie is about a brother and a sister trying to find a new home for their aging father who has no place to go. Excellent cast, brilliant screenplay, an outstanding movie.
