Synopsis

Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep play the divorced couple fighting for custody of their child (Justin Henry). This simple, emotionally-charged premise provided one of the biggest earning movies of the year and Oscars for Best Picture and the two stars (plus a nod for Henry, making him the youngest Oscar nominee before Quvenzhané Wallis for Beasts of the Southern Wild). Touching entertainment of the highest order.
