This is our mother. Pray for us.
Set in 1963, this is the heart-warming story of the relationship between an unorthodox, vagabond single mother, and her two daughters.
This coming-of-age story centres on daughter Charlotte (Winona Ryder), a teenage girl torn between her passion for a young man who works at the local church and her desire – despite being Jewish – to become a nun. After yet another failed relationship, unconventional mother Mrs. Flax (Cher) ups her family to the east coast to start all over again in a small Massachusetts town. Forced – yet again -to start life all over, the tensions soon increase between Charlotte, her swimming-obsessed younger sister (Christina Ricci), and their man-eating mother.
Familial bonds are both challenged and strengthened in this funny and tender tale. Starring Christina Ricci, Winona Ryder, Bob Hoskins and Cher and featuring the hit single ‘The Shoop Shoop Song (It’s In His Kiss)’ as performed by Cher!
