"Linney continues to create wonderfully comic neurotics....[The characters] remain vividly engaging."Box Office "THE SAVAGES is terrific -- A movie of uncommon appreciation for the nature and nurture that go into making us who we are, a perfectly calibrated drama both compassionate and unsentimental." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly "[A] beautifully nuanced tragicomedy about two floundering souls....A true-to-life tale told by a director and actors who've sunk so deep into their movie together you wonder how they ever surfaced."New York Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] remarkably clear-eyed portrait....While the film is heart-wrenchingly sad, it also is mordantly funny, uncomfortably prickly and above all, unflinching in its depiction of a believable sibling relationship."USA Today 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Linney is an amazement, showing vulnerability and strength at war for a character's soul....With the help of acting giants, Jenkins turns THE SAVAGES into a twisted, bittersweet pleasure."Rolling Stone "[A] marvellously acute, poignant and witty drama....The film retains a quirky, uplifting quality..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thoughtful, mordant and exquisitely scripted portrait of an estranged brother and sister..."Total Film "For a tender, uncommonly perceptive look at sibling relationships and a profound meditation on death and the meaning we draw from experience, THE SAVAGES is singularly funny and seriously moving."Los Angeles Times 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE SAVAGES makes a virtue of its sidetracked setting, finding scuffed humour in the minutiae of human life, so that when the laughs do come they feel profound, jagged and real."Empire 3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ell-observed social comedy and great acting by two of America's best....An insightful, uncompromised look at the banal and unavoidable realities of family life."Uncut27.28924
