Much like the title family it depicts so well, The Savages is constantly at odds with itself--hilarious yet heartbreaking, warm yet frigid. The result is one final contradiction: a movie that is tough to swallow, yet one of the year’s best.

August Rush comes dangerously close to being too feel-good for its own good, but the dynamic trio of strong performances, magical imagery and nonstop music prevails.
