Enlightened (2011)

Laura Dern as "Amy Jellicoe"

An ambitious corporate executive, Amy Jellicoe has succeeded despite the fact she can be her own worst enemy. After a series of self-destructive choices leads to a very public, humiliating nervous breakdown, Amy spends three months at a treatment center in Hawaii, where she learns to live a more enlightened existence. Upon returning home, however, she discovers her new passionate and honest outlook isn't accepted by her family, friends and co-workers, notably her mom, Helen, with whom Amy now lives, and her drug-addicted ex-husband, Levi. Immersed in a more complicated life, Amy must decide what's really important to her.

Emmy (Primetime) (2013) Nominated Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Golden Globe (2012) Won Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy
