| Excellent Emotional Drama
This film is notable for two reasons: The excellent writing, and the amazing acting performances of Joan Jett (surprise - this woman can ACT!), and Michael J. Fox.

Mature, heart-wrentching emotional drama centered on the trials of a dysfunctional family headed by matriarch Gena Rowlands - who also gives a stellar performance. Jett should have been nominated for an Oscar for her performance - particularly the scenes with her dying mother. An insightful, brutally honest script coupled with exceptional acting produces a film of unusual emotional power. Very moving and thought-provoking. A must-see, and definitely one of the best films of the 1980s.
