Kramer vs Kramer

  • Film
0 Love It
A high class modern weepie. While Hoffman and Streep come to terms with divorce and battle over who gets the brat, Benton forsakes the eccentric and original delights of his earlier films (Bad Company, The Late Show) and turns in a very solid and professional domestic melodrama, helped no end by some very fine naturalistic performances. As sensitive and as unremarkable as your average Truffaut film, and as ambivalent in its sexual politics.
