Originally, this was intended to be a made-for-television film. When the producers saw how well Amy Madigan
played the title role, they released it in theatres so that Madigan had a chance at an Academy Award nomination (she wasn't nominated for this film but years later, she was nominated for Twice in a Lifetime
(1985)). See more
