We live in a world in which people watch movies to be thrilled and excited. It's difficult enough to pry someone away from their cell phone, tablet or PC for long enough to watch an entire movie. In order to cater to this trend, Hollywood has largely moved away from emotional dramas like Kramer vs. Kramer, replacing them with CGI-loaded blockbusters. If this movie had been made in 2014, there's an 87 percent chance that Ted would be a shape-shifting vampire with telekinetic powers.

That's a huge shame.

I watch my fair share of action, science fiction, and adventure movies, but most of my favorites are serious dramas. I like being made to feel something other than amazement at the visuals. Kramer vs. Kramer won five Oscars; Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay. Watching the film in 2014, those awards still seem thoroughly deserved.

This is a great story because it's so real and believable. It opens with a scene in which Ted Kramer (Dustin Hoffman) is given a major promotion at work. He's thrilled at his success and eventually makes his way home to deliver the news to wife, Joanna (Meryl Streep). Unfortunately, Joanna is just finishing the task of packing her bags, and announces that she is leaving him. Ted can't believe her poor timing, but it's clear to us that work is his main priority.

The mood changes as the reality of Ted's situation sets in. Most of the events are told from his perspective, so it's easy to empathize with his problems. His boss wants him to be available 24/7, but that's impossible if you are responsible for an 8-year-old child. Ted has relied on Joanna to take care of his son, Billy (Justin Henry), and despite his false optimism, Ted has little idea of what is involved.

The movie is about a woman (Meryl Streep) who had emotional problems and suddenly leaves her son to her husband Dustin Hoffman to take care of him. The father did his best, but it had an negative impact on his career. Meryl Streep decides later in the film to take back her son, and Hoffman refuses so the matter is taken to court. The legal battle starts.

Dans cette délicieuse comédie, Dustin Hoffman interprète un publicitaire qui se retrouve seul avec son fils lorque sa femme le quitte.

On assiste alors à la transformation, pas toujours évidente, d'un homme qui devient peu à peu un vrai papa.

Amusant, léger, désopilant.

Scénario plein de fraîcheur.

Format: DVD
A wonderful, beautifully acted film about the meanings of love,
friendship, and above all parenthood. This is the film where Robert
Benton's complex humanism really comes to full flower.

In a situation that almost demands taking sides ' a sudden divorce
leading to an unprepared father taking over childcare only to be
challenged for custody when the mother returns 18 months later ' Benton
manages to make everyone a complex human being, with strengths and
weaknesses, trying their best to do the right thing in a painful, messy
situation.

Hoffman, who has been brilliant so many times playing characters far
from himself is perhaps the most moving he's ever been playing a
character that director Benton described as really, honestly playing
himself ' perhaps the hardest character of all. Streep takes a woman
who could have easily come off as the villain of the piece, and makes
you understand her actions - - even abandoning her little boy. Jane
Alexander is wonderful and subtle as the slowly developing friend
Hoffman makes as a single father, and young Justin Henry is utterly
real in a way few child actors are as the 7 year old stuck in the
middle. It's also beautifully, if understatedly shot by Nestor
Almendros.

It's flaws are minor. Some of the supporting roles, while played by
terrific character actors, are a bit more one note and characturish
than they need be. And some of the courtroom theatrics feel just a tiny
bit' well, theatrical.
