The Hotel New Hampshire (1984) Poster

Trivia

Jodie Foster later said that with this movie began the lowest point of her career, as she turned down worthy roles in Splash (1984), The Terminator (1984) and The Breakfast Club (1985). Her career wouldn't recover until Kim Basinger turned down the role of Sarah Tobias in The Accused (1988) and finally the part once assigned to Basinger was won by Foster, for which she won her first Academy Award.
