What a cast! I hope they give everything in the movie and show to all of those young actors how to act. They are two of my favourites movie stars right now.

Holy shit you're right. This does have Oscar written all over it. Shanley, IMO is one of the best writers working today and it's been far too long for him to be away from the motion picture business. Hoffman and Streep are a dream cast!
