Join us for a special showing of this beloved classic about mothers and daughters, followed by a conversation with “Mermaids” novelist Patty Dann. A film for anyone whose mother ever drove them crazy, this quirky comedy/drama stars Cher as Rachel Flax, a free-spirited single mother living with her two daughters - teenager Charlotte (Winona Ryder) and 9-year-old Kate (Christina Ricci) in a small New England town in 1963. Their tight-knit bonds are tested when Rachel is romanced by a local shoe salesman (Bob Hoskins) who'd like to become part of the family. (US, 1990, 110min., English, PG-13 | Dir. Richard Benjamin)
