ABOUT SCH­MIDT

Wed­nes­day 2pm, Mas­ter­piece (M) ★★★

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Movie Reviews -

Re­tiree War­ren Sch­midt (Jack Ni­chol­son) lives with his dull wife, at a loose end un­til events send him on a road trip – his in­tended des­ti­na­tion is the wed­ding of his only child Jean­nie ( Hope Davis). He pauses along the way for some sting­ing laughs and some re­flec­tion de­liv­ered through let­ters he writes to an African or­phan he sup­ports. Kathy Bates comes pretty close to steal­ing Ni­chol­son’s thun­der.
