One True Thing

December 19th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Today’s Holiday movie, One True Thing, is a tear-jerker. It’s the story of Ellen (Renee Zellweger), a young New York City journalist whose career is on the rise. But when she returns home for a birthday party, her life changes in ways she never expected. Her mother (Meryl Streep), Kate, has just been diagnosed with cancer and needs someone to look after her. Ellen’s father (William Hurt), a college prof, puts the burden of Kate’s care on Ellen’s shoulders.

The tone is set when Kate, dressed up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, says “There’s no place like home,” and Ellen mutters — under her breath behind mom’s back, of course — “Thank god.”

What follows is the story of a young woman discovering that her homemaker mother was stronger than anyone thought, and that her father — long idolized by Ellen — is not the man she thought he was.

Hope you enjoy the movie,
Rebecca (),
