After yet another failed relationship, Mrs. Flax (Cher) ups her family to the east coast to start all over again. Reluctantly dragged along with her is her daughter Charlotte - going through a very confusing time of her life - who wants to become a nun, and instead falls in love with a quiet, mild-mannered church employee, to the mixed response of her mother. Set at around the time of the Kennedy Assassination.Written by

Emily Lloyd had actually started shooting when Winona Ryder became available and Lloyd was unceremoniously dumped. Lloyd later won a sizable cash settlement from the production company for being booted off the film. Original director Frank Oz was also replaced, allegedly at Cher's insistence. See more »
Cher's mermaid wig and costume for the New Year's Eve party is very circa 1990 and looks nothing like what would have been sold in 1963. See more »
If you care about us, would it kill you to show it?
"Us"? When did YOU and *my* children become "us"? You're just YOU, Lou - me and the girls, THAT'S "us"!
I was talking about you and me.

The versions shown on A&E and Lifetime both have the ending between Cher and Christina Ricci. See more »
I think this is a delightful movie. The period details are fun, Cher is GREAT, and the chemistry between Hoskins, Cher, Winona Ryder and Christina Ricci is excellent. Ryder is especially good at capturing that mixure of idealism, angst and embarrassment which is adolescence.
