1 hr. 40 min.
Long abandoned by her husband, Amanda Whitfield (Katharine Hepburn) lives in a small St. Louis apartment with her grown children, smothering them both with her attention. Her son, Tom (Sam Waterston), dreams of being a writer, but supports the family with a warehouse job, while her sensitive, crippled daughter, Laura (Joanna Miles), resists her mother's attempts to get her to marry. Tom reluctantly helps his mother by inviting co-worker Jim O'Connor (Michael Moriarty) to dinner to court Laura.
