This movie is about the turbulent relationship between a young woman and her mother. It chronicles their lives from the girls childhood to adulthood which may in some circles classify this movie as a chick flick. BUT, it is a critically acclaimed award winning chick flick that will probably make you cry. I don't care how hard you are. Life can be a bitch.
Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger playing a combative mother and daughter who see each other through various ups and downs in love and loss, and most especially through a terminal illness endured by Winger's character. Jack Nicholson deservedly won an Oscar for his supporting role as a free-spirited astronaut who backs away from a romance with MacLaine and then returns in the clutch.
A definite chick flick, one of the best for sure!
