The best-reviewed film of all time, according to Film Aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, follows Marion McPherson, a California nurse, who works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job.
She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her -- loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated.
“Thoughtful and generous, it’s that rare ensemble film that gives its side characters enough room to breathe and grow…a film filled with heart, smarts and the wry wisdom of distance.” (Time Out ?????)
Directed by Greta Gerwig
