Hannah and Her Sisters

Mellow, beautiful, rich and brimming with love, Woody Allen’s 1986 film is perfection. It’s one of Allen’s very best, revealing emotional complexity of both range and depth, understanding of the foibles of others while being less edgy than usual about his own. Smart, funny and touching, the film is set deep in the lives of a vibrant family whom we follow from Thanksgiving to Thanksgiving over a two-year period. At its heart are three sisters: the sustaining Mia Farrow (left), the stunning Barbara Hershey (right) and the fragile, skittish Dianne Wiest.
