Only When I Laugh (1981)

Kristy McNichol as "Polly"

Actress Georgia (Marsha Mason) gets out of treatment for alcohol addiction, only to be greeted by a host of interpersonal problems. Her two best friends are dragging her down with their self-involvement, but her friends are the least of her worries. Stress levels skyrocket when Georgia's angst-ridden teenager, Polly (Kristy McNichol), needs a place to live, and her ex-husband (David Dukes) pressures her to star in a new film that spills secrets about their defunct relationship.
