Tonight's the night in Los Angeles - but here are some previous best film winners you might or might not want to revisit Kramer Vs Kramer Year: 1979 Starring: Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander, Justin Henry Director: Robert Benton The film: Kramer Vs Kramer came at the end of what was a great decade for Hollywood and for real films winning at the Oscars (The Godfather, The Deer Hunter, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Annie Hall - to name a few). And it could hold its head up high in such company. It is the film about divorce and the problems it causes. Delicately handled, it focuses on the relationship between a commercially successful father (Dustin Hoffman) and his neglected son (Justin Henry) when the wife and mother (Meryl Streep) leaves unexpectedly. It is painful and moving to watch as Hoffman loses his job and nearly his sanity in being mother and father to his son. However, a close bond forms and you can't help but think everything will work out. Until, that is, Streep returns, wanting her child back. However, instead of pitching the viewer into siding with one of the parents, the film lays bare the tragedy of a couple splitting, even when they still love each other. Cinematic genius at its best. The extras: It's a great surprise to discover on this disc of an old film that there is a documentary on its making. It's even better when you find it's not the usual back-slapping exercise, but an interesting piece in its own right - largely to do with how human and humble all those involved in the film were. You learn, for instance, that Hoffman was responsible for a lot of the material in the film, as he was going through a divorce himself at the time (he refused a writing credit, which he now regrets as it would have got him another Oscar on top of his best actor award). You also learn about the real care that went into making the film truthful at a time, as Streep comments, when film-makers and audiences were interested in people's behaviour. The verdict: A great film and a good package. Classic stuff.
