Quotes

Ann: [on the phone] Do you ever think about me?
Hisham Badir: Ann, do you need me to help out in some way?
Ann: What?
Hisham Badir: Do you need some money?
Ann: That's a terrible thing to say. I just wanted to talk to you. You're my father and I thought maybe I could see you.
Hisham Badir: Well I thought perhaps your mother asked you to.
Ann: [interrupts] My mother didn't ask me to do anything. Why would you say that?
Hisham Badir: You know your mother.
Ann: Yes I do know my mother and this isn't about your money. She has nothing to do with this.
Hisham Badir: Ann, I don't know what to say...

I picked this movie up because I was curious to see Natalie Portman in something that was pre Star Wars. I liked this movie. Natalie and Susan were wonderful as mother and daughter. Susan Sarandon is such an outstanding actor. Better and better with every movie she does.
