MOVIE: ABOUT SCH­MIDT

MAS­TER­PIECE ( FOX­TEL), 2PM

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

War­ren Sch­midt lives in Omaha with his dull wife of 42 years. Re­tired, his life is ba­si­cally one loose end. But then events send War­ren ( Jack Ni­chol­son, right) on a road trip, his in­tended tended des­ti­na­tion is the Den­ver wed­ding of his only child Jean­nie ( Hope Davis), and us on a jour­ney that pauses along the way for some sting­ing laughs and some re­flec­tion de­liv­ered through let­ters War­ren writes to an African or­phan he sup­ports. This is Ni­chol­son near his finest ( which is say­ing some­thing), al­though Kathy Bates gives him a run for his money when it comes to steal­ing scenes.
