  • Director Bruce Beresford's adaptation of Beth Henley's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about three eccentric southern sisters stars Diane Keaton as Lenny Magrath, Jessica Lange as Meg, and Sissy Spacek as Babe. Long separated, they convene for Lenny's birthday at the family mansion in the Deep South, where Lenny cares for her ailing grandfather. Lenny, the oldest sister, anxious about her shrunken ovary, has never married, nor has Meg, with her underwhelming singing career and her long string of boyfriends. As for Babe, she's fresh out of jail, having shot her husband, a senator, for objecting to her affair with a teenage boy. Given the family's long history of adultery, scandal, and tragedy, including their mother's well-publicized suicide, the reunited siblings have much to talk about. And since this is a family reunion, it's natural that nasty cousin Chick Boyle (Tess Harper) should appear to give the sisters a piece of her mind. Keaton, Lange, and Spacek share a wonderful chemistry in this dark comedy that's equal parts laughter and tears.
