This is Woody Allen's homage to Ingmar Bergman. E.G. Marshall and Geraldine Page portray the parents of three sisters: Diane Keaton, Kristin Griffith and Mary Beth Hurt. Marshall is wealthy; Page is mentally disturbed. When Marshall announces that he is leaving Page, she starts to totally disintegrate. Marshall plans to marry Maureen Stapleton. The three daughters rush to their mother's side to see her through her crisis. But the daughters have trials of their own: Keaton has a troubled marriage to a "hack" novelist (Richard Jordan); Hurt has great talent but is destructively unfocused; and Griffith is an overly self-centered television actress. How this family works out its difficulties is the focus of this stylish, brilliantly acted and impressively told story.
