The Savages

| | Comments (0)

Last night's film series movie was The Savages.  I enjoyed it quite a lot.  It was basically the story of a pair of siblings dealing with their father's end-of-life stuff, as well as their general life stuff.  It was quite good: mostly serious with the occasional touch of humor.

One thing I didn't like about the film series was that there was a lot of laughing at inappropriate times.  There were a lot of moments that were very serious, sad, weighty.  But people would be laughing nonetheless.  Maybe they can't be blamed too much; the previews really emphasized the funny moments.  But still, some of the things about dealing with their father's dementia aren't funny, but people were still laughing.

Anyway, I recommend it.
