Woody Allen’s finest film?
Hannah and Her Sisters
Starring Mia Farrow, Michael Caine, Max von Sydow
Directed by Woody Allen
USA 1986 107 minutes
Woody Allen writes, directs and stars in this heart-warming comedy drama, set over the course of two Thanksgivings. Hannah (Mia Farrow), wife, mother, successful actress and lynchpin to her family, is married to Elliot (Michael Caine); but Elliot is in love with Lee (Barbara Hershey), Hannah's sister. Holly (Dianne Wiest), Hannah's other sister, is jealous of Hannah, whilst Mickey (Woody Allen), Hannah's first husband, is convinced he is dying of a brain tumour. Hannah’s family seems to resent her stability almost as much as they depend on it, and when her world is quietly sabotaged by sibling rivalry, Hannah finally comes to see that that she must choose between the independence her family can't live with . . . and the family she can't live without. This wry, joyous film won Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Caine), Best Supporting Actress (Wiest) and Best Screenplay (Allen).
