Why We Love It

Academy Award winning actress Joanne Woodward was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her performance as a Congresswoman desperately trying to save her family and career. Laura Linney plays her pregnant, drug-addicted daughter with realistic grace in one of her first breakout roles ever. A story about choices, consequences, and redemption, this is one emotional journey mothers and daughters may find especially meaningful.

Description

Congresswoman Nell Harrington's seemingly perfect life collapses when her son-in-law dies in a car accident. Her grief is compounded by the discovery that he was addicted to cocaine--and so is her daughter. As their lives unravel, Nell scrambles to save her daughter, her grandchild, and her career, but her domineering attitude is pushing her family apart. Mother and daughter must face the consequences of their choices in order to move forward.
