“Growing Apart. Growing Together. Sisters Forever.”

My Sister’s Keeper 2001
Directed by Ron Lagomarsino
Starring: Kathy Bates, Elizabeth Perkins

It isn't always easy for sisters to find common ground and develop mutual respect. My Sister's Keeper is a poignant and sensitive portrayal of a real-life story of two sisters and their journey toward self-discovery and understanding. Academy Award® winner Kathy Bates (Misery, Titanic) provides a remarkable performance as Christine, a woman who longs for independence and the personal fulfillment she associates with "an ordinary life." She is constantly frustrated, though, as she must rely on others for support. Elizabeth Perkins (Big, 28 Days) stars as Judy, her high-achieving younger sister, who lives a work-centered life as an art editor in New York City. Both their lives are interrupted when their mother (Lynn Redgrave, Georgy Girl, Gods ans Monsters) suddenly dies. As the two sisters search for common ground between their very different worlds, they struggle to forge the type of strong loving relationship they hope will lead them to an unconditional acceptance of one another. My Sister's Keeper is an intimate and unforgettable look at an extraordinary life we rarely get to see. (Hallmark of Fame)
