Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country
This is the outrageous and controversial story of legendary movie star Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) and her struggle with the dual role of fading actress and tormented mother. Mommie Dearest is based on the memoirs of Crawford’s adopted daughter Christina and provides an insight into the private Crawford, trying to survive in the cutthroat movie industry and so desperate to be a mother she adopted children when she was single. Largely from Christina's viewpoint, we see Crawford's succession of lovers and husbands, career ups and (mainly) downs, fantastic egotism, and dependence on and abusiveness toward her children.
Suitable only for 15 years and over.
