Ted Kramer's wife leaves him, allowing for a lost bond to be rediscovered between Ted and his son, Billy. But a heated custody battle ensues over the divorced couple's son, deepening the wounds left by the separation.
Aurora and Emma are mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Aurora's interludes with Garrett Breedlove, retired astronaut and next door neighbor are quite striking. In the end, different people show their love in very different ways.Written by

This book, on which the movie is based, is divided into two parts. One part takes place in 1962, the rest of it is supposed to take place from 1971 to 1976. But we see Aurora walk past a Pac-Man machine at one point. (Pac-Man wasn't around until 1980). See more »

I have an emergency phone call from Mrs. Aurora Greenway in Houston, Texas for Mrs. Emma Horton.
No, she always does this when the lines busy. It's fine.
Will you release?
Oh, uh, of course, operator... uh... it's alright... we were just talking.

Life is a gap between what we expect to happen and what really occurs.
Aurora doesn't accept the gap and she closes herself in her "daughter & home" micro-world.
Life turns up to be more cruel to her than the average, but she proves to be ready and faces all obstacles that come with outstanding integrity and brave.
So, accept the gap but bé ready.
Memmorable Shirley MacLaine in a universal classic movie.
