The story of a very dysfunctional family and what happens when the parents divorce. Eve (Geraldine Page) and Arthur (EG Marshall) are a 60-something couple, recently separated. They have three adult daughters - Renata (Diane Keaton), Joey (Mary Beth Hurt) and Flyn (Kristin Griffith). Renata is a poet and is married to Frederick (Richard Jordan). Joey is (reluctantly) in advertising and is married to Mike (Sam Waterston). Flyn is a film and TV actress. Eve is an incredibly negative woman and this has had a toxic effect on her children. This results in stifling, unsupportive relationships and joyless lives.Written by
(at around 8 mins) When Eve and Joey are drinking coffee after moving the lamp, the mugs bounce on their legs, no steam rises from the mugs and no liquid is visible, the mugs also move very freely when being lifted for a "drink". All of these things point to empty mugs. See more »
I prefer a warmer climate. I even lived in Australia for a year with my sister Faye, when Adam died, but I went nuts! Its dead there.
I was in Sydney Australia once.
Was I lying? Did you like it?
Well it was just a vacation you know. I was only there a coupla days.
Lucky. It's like a morgue. Nothing to do at night; no pizzazz. I couldn't take that.

John Waters said that if this film was made under a Swedish pseudonym, they would of called it a masterpiece. Woody Allen was only able to get a film like this made after he won all those Oscars for Annie Hall. Everyone is great in here and it's nice that there's no soundtrack. This is one of Woody Allen's best films.
