Academy Award® winners Sissy Spacek and Anne Bancroft star in this powerful drama about a mother's emotional struggle to understand her troubled daughter. Jessie (Spacek) is an epileptic with a failed marriage and a delinquent son who decides to take control the only way she can—by taking her own life. Thelma (Bancroft), her widowed mother, is oblivious to her daughter's depression until she becomes frightfully aware of her plans. Adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, it’s a heart-wrenching, riveting power struggle as Thelma tries everything within her power to convince Jessie to find hope.
