SLUMS OF BEVERLY HILLS
1998, Fox Searchlight, 91 min, Dir: Tamara Jenkins

Growing up on the outskirts of Beverly Hills, Vivian (Natasha Lyonne) dreams of a life in which her car salesman father (Alan Arkin) can finally afford a home and retire and she and her brothers can fit in at their prestigious high school. Those dreams seemingly become reality when Vivian’s wealthy uncle Mickie (Carl Reiner) promises them a luxury apartment. The only catch is that Vivian must keep an eye on his daughter (Marisa Tomei), who’s struggling to kick an addiction and finish nursing school - a task that is sure to push the young 14-year-old to her limit. Funny, observant and filled with memorable performances, this remarkable feature debut from writer-director Tamara Jenkins is richly deserving of its cult status.

THE SAVAGES
2007, 20th Century Fox, 113 min, USA, Dir: Tamara Jenkins

Wendy Savage (Laura Linney) is a struggling East Village playwright who is involved with a married man. Her brother, Jon (Philip Seymour Hoffman), is a college professor in Buffalo who lives an isolated academic life and can’t commit to the Polish woman with whom he has been intimately involved for years. When a phone call informs them that their father, Lenny (Philip Bosco), has developed dementia and can no longer take care of himself, Wendy and Jon put their already arrested lives on hold to butt heads over all the decisions that must be made about how to care for their father during his final days.
