Classic Film Guide

Terms of Endearment (1983)

I can still remember the tears. Of course I've always loved Shirley MacLaine movies (she finally won gold on her fifth and last, so far, Best Actress nomination) and this film is so good it almost makes having to watch Debra Winger (Oscar nominated) tolerable, winning the Best Picture Oscar. A film about family relationships, particularly mother & daughter. Producer James L. Brooks won his only three Oscars in his directorial debut (also for Best Adapted Screenplay).  Jack Nicholson won his Best Supporting Oscar over John Lithgow (also nominated).
