MOVIE: THE SAVAGES
FOXTEL MASTERPIECE, 2.10PM
LAURA Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman together is a casting department dream come true. They play siblings Wendy and Jon Savage, and it seems the family name is descriptive. She is a struggling playwright and he is a successful academic. Both are forced to put aside their differences and their self- interests when their father ( a terrific turn from Philip Bosco, now aged 82) starts showing signs of dementia.
