Academy Award-winning actress [[Performer~P33968~Helen Hunt~helenhunt]] makes her feature directorial debut with this adaptation of [[Performer~P434687~Elinor Lipman~elinorlipman]]'s best-selling novel about a Philadelphia schoolteacher ([[Performer~P33968~Hunt~helenhunt]]) whose long-lost birth mother ([[Performer~P102748~Bette Midler~bettemidler]]) reappears at the very moment her daughter is careening into a midlife crisis. Abandoned by her husband ([[Performer~P8627~Matthew Broderick~matthewbroderick]]) and still grieving the death of her adoptive mother, the emotionally fragile teacher enters into a relationship with the father of one of her students just as her biological mother, an eccentric talk-show host, appears on her doorstep attempting a reconciliation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
