The success of Philip Seymour Hoffman

Measuring results for many charities is tricky. Helping people grasp reality is a good start.

In 1992, I first noticed Philip Seymour Hoffman; he was playing a young student in Scent of a Woman. In the 1996 movie Twister, he added whirlwind energy as a manic storm chaser. and strongly registered with me.  

But in 1999’s Magnolia, his performance as a compassionate nurse providing palliative care to Jason Robards moved me and made me a fan. And his 2005 Oscar-winning role as author Truman Capote was unnerving.
