Get ready to take Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman home on DVD. The Savages will be released on standard DVD on April 22. The disc will be priced at $27.96 SRP. The film, which is up for two Oscars this weekend (Best Actress - Laura Linney, Best Original Screenplay - Tamara Jenkins), stars Laura Linney, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Philip Bosco.
Nominated for two Academy Awards including Best Actress for Laura Linney and Best Original Screenplay for writer/director Tamara Jenkins, The Savages centers on two siblings who are reluctantly forced to look back at their difficult family history. Having wriggled their way beneath their father's domineering thumb, they are firmly cocooned in their own complicated lives - Wendy (Linney) a struggling playwright; Jon (Philip Seymour Hoffman) a neurotic college professor. When their father (Philip Bosco) begins to be consumed by dementia, they are forced to live together under one roof for the first time since childhood. Faced with complete upheaval and battling over how to handle their father's final days, they are confronted with what adulthood, family and most surprisingly, each other are really about.
