Passion Fish

With a story that in lesser hands might have become a cliched tale of coping with personal tragedy, John Sayles creates one of his most pleasurable and graceful films, featuring Mary McDonnell in an Oscar-nominated performance. McDonnell plays a successful New York soap opera star who returns to her native Louisiana after an accident leaves her partly paralyzed. Alfre Woodard costars as her spirited full-time caretaker, who jousts with the spoiled actress in a colorful struggle of wills. "Sayles at his best" - "The Washington Post."
