Emotionally charged film version of Anna Quindlen's novel stars Renee Zellweger as a young New York magazine writer who reluctantly returns to her upstate hometown to help look after her ailing mother, cancer patient Meryl Streep. Long-standing conflicts between the independent Zellweger, seemingly simplistic homemaker Streep, and patriarch William Hurt are brought to the surface. Directed by Carl Franklin ("One False Move"). 128 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French; Subtitles: Spanish; production notes; biographies; trailer.
