There is so seldom even one great performance in a movie that three is too much to expect. For that reason alone, this story of a couple battling for custody of their young son is a remarkable achievement.

What could so easily have become something false and tacky is handled with truth and restraint.

Kramer Vs. Kramer is a perceptive, touching, intelligent film about one of the raw sores of contemporary America, the dissolution of the family unit.

Like a few other recent movies, it takes a serious look at problems faced in real people in real life -- family conflicts, personality problems, childrearing dilemmas.

Kramer vs. Kramer is definitely a movie to watch together -- your kids may well seek shelter under your arm, glad to know their own families enjoy more peace.

A movie that makes you think about the relevance of the thought that only mother's make great single-parent adults.

It's the old wash, but so well done that we can overlook Benton's manipulations of our emotions and let our feelings flow.
