|Academy Award winner® Philip Seymour Hoffman* and Academy Award® nominee Laura Linney** deliver unforgettable performances in this hilarious coming-of-middle age story from Oscar® -nominated writer / director Tamara Jenkins***. Until recently, all John and Wendy Savage (Hoffman, Linney) had in common were a lousy childhood and a few strands of DNA. But after years of drifting apart, they're forced to band together to care for the elderly, cantankerous father who made their formative "challenging." In the process, both of these aimless, perpetually adolescent fortysomethings may just, at long last, have to grow up!
