Storyline

Laura Carlson is a well-to-do matron whose oldest daughter dies. The girl was always Laura's favorite; the remaining children, though not unaffected by the loss, hope that now their mother will pay some attention to them. Instead, Laura's grief threatens to shatter her already shaky relationship with her younger offspring. She virtually shuts the kids out of her life in order to finish her older daughter's uncompleted book. To My Daughter was unofficially based on the career of real-life writer Nancy Lynn Schwartz, who did indeed die before completing her history of the Screen Actors' Guild, obliging her mother to finish the job.

To My Daughter truly is the creme de la creme of all of Rue McClanahan's movies that I've seen to date (or at least certainly the dramas). The film is well-written, the storyline is touching and moves along at an appropriate pace, the characters are developed and each of the main actor/actresses give a commendable performance. To My Daughter showcases Rue's tremendous talent to perform drama, as she gives what is arguably one of her best performances in a film (I still maintain that The Golden Girls is "the best of Rue" overall). Each cast member creates compassion and sympathy for his or her character and has the ability to draw the viewer into the film.
