As we all expect from Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, stellar performances all around. This story about a freeloading Phoenix and a rich mind controlling Hoffman worked well and fit with their typical heart warming, thinking man’s type movies. The story moved a little slow in the middle, but blossomed for a fulfilling end. I am sure there will be nominations for Phoenix and Hoffman in this movie. Amy Adams stole the show in a few scenes, and may get a nod for supporting actress. This is a great film for those who love the art of the movies.
