MOVIE: THE SAV­AGES

FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE, 2.10PM

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

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.
