In this tearjerker based on a successful stage drama, an untimely death haunts a trio of sisters, yet their love proves stronger than any familial tragedy. Meg, Lenny and Babe Magrath aren't exactly mirror images of one another, as becomes clear through their dealings with Old Granddaddy. But when one of the siblings is pushed to the brink by desperation, they pull together during a makeshift reunion.
• Meg just left one. Lenny never had one. Babe just shot one. The MaGrath sisters sure have a way with men!
• Star Jessica Lange was pregnant during principal photography. Lange gave birth to her second child at age 36, a daughter Hannah Jane Shepard on 13th January 1986. The child’s father was her now ex-partner Sam Shepard, a co-star in this film.
