Three sisters reunite when the youngest shoots her husband.
WHY WE PICKED IT: Jessica Lange, Diane Keaton, and Sissy Spacek share an enticing, effortless chemistry as the perpetually-unlucky-in-love sisters.
The Magrath sisters may be quite different, but they’re family nonetheless. Raised by their “Old Granddaddy” after their mother hanged herself and the family cat at the same time, Lenny - a wallflower who now cares for their grandfather, Meg - a singer whose attempt to make it in Hollywood ended with a nervous breakdown, and Babe - the impulsive youngest sister having an affair with a precocious neighborhood teenager, have gone their own ways. But when Babe shoots her abusive husband, the women reunite at their childhood home. Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Beth Henley.
DIRECTOR: Bruce Beresford
