The Good Mother

DIANE KEATON PLAYS A DIVORCED MOTHER LIVING WITH HER 4-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER. AFTER MEETING A NEW MAN, SHE BEGINS TO DISCOVER HER OWN SEXUALITY; BUT THE PRICE SHE PAYS FOR THAT AWAKENING IS HORRIFIC WHEN A MISUNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THEM PRODUCES THE GROUNDS ON WHICH HER EX-HUSBAND ACTS AGAINST HER. THE RESULT IS A CUSTODY BATTLE BASED ON THE ALLEGATION THAT HER CHILD MAY HAVE BEEN MOLESTED BY HER LOVER. WHAT FOLLOWS IS "A TRAGIC CONFLICT NOT BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL BUT BETWEEN TWO POWERFUL SETS OF FEELINGS, THE EROTIC AND THE MATERNAL." THIS BITTERSWEET DRAMA WAS DIRECTED BY LEONARD NIMOY, MARKING HIS FIRST PRODUCTION SINCE COMPLETING "THREE MEN AND A BABY" IN 1987. JASON ROBARDS PLAYS THE DEFENSE ATTORNEY.
