Kramer vs. Kramer
1979
Ted (Dustin Hoffman) is a career-driven yuppie -- until he finds out his dissatisfied wife (Meryl Streep) is leaving him and their 6-year-old son. But just as Ted begins to love being a full-time parent, his wife reappears to reclaim the boy. Poignant and beautifully acted, this cinematic tearjerker swept the 1979 Academy Awards, winning Oscars for Hoffman and Streep in addition to Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay honors.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I was too young to see this in 1979, but I'm glad I caught up. It's been lauded many times over the years, so I don't know what more I could say to praise it. I was quite moved, and impressed, especially with Dustin Hoffman.
