Peter Travers Video Review: "Enchanted," "The Savages" and "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly"


Rolling Stone's movie critic says three of the best performances of the year come from The Savages, where Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney portray selfish fortysomething siblings dealing with their father's (Philip Bosco) declining health. Travers has similar praise for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Julian Schnabel's true-story picture about Jean-Dominique Bauby, a French playboy whose life was transformed following an accident that paralyzed every part of his body save his left eyelid. And while Enchanted is a fairytale flick aimed at kids, Travers says everyone should see it to witness the emergence of budding starlet Amy Adams.
