Challenges in life & love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship in "Terms of Endearment." Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother, Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma's struggle in her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find courage in each other? This funny & touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers & daughters, husbands & wives, & lovers, both old & new.
