The death and funeral of their father brings three sisters to the home of their mother, Violet (Meryl Streep), an acid-tongued, pill-popping cancer patient. Daughters Barbara (Julia Roberts), Karen (Juliette Lewis) and Ivy (Julianne Nicholson) -- along with their significant others and various other kin -- take the full brunt of their dysfunctional matriarch's venom, for Violet tells every one of them exactly what she thinks of them. Based on the play by Tracy Letts.
Pushing 30, Debby (Uma Thurman) finds herself anxiously single, despite the fact that she and her best friend Beth (Juliette Lewis) spend every night at Ollie's searching for Mr. Right. When Rick comes in the bar one night, Debby pegs him as her dream guy. In spite of the energy the women invest in finding a mate, preserving their relationship with each other is their primary desire. But it is this bond that lurches out of balance when the men in their lives threaten to take their love away.
