This glossy melodrama focuses on two single mothers, one white and one black, and the pressures and prejudices they face in pre-civil rights era America. Turner plays an actress whose career has left her little time for her young daughter, while Oscar-nominated Moore gives a heart-wrenching performance as her friend and housekeeper whose light-skinned daughter rejects her heritage once she realises she can "pass" for a white girl. This handsome film expertly blends social comment with emotional issues, it's impossible to remain unaffected by it.
