Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) | Directed by Robert Benton

Grade: A

Thoughts: I had been silently dreading watching this film, for fear that its subject matter would be held fairly melodramatically. but thanks to a superb screenplay and outstanding performances from Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep (who both won Oscars), it actually was one of the most moving films I’ve seen in quite awhile to deal with domestic problems. Incredible.
