Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

She is woman, hear her roar.

Ellen Burstyn won a most-deserved Oscar as a woman who carves out a new life for herself and her son after her husband is killed in a car wreck.

There is humor in Martin Scorsese’s film, written by Oscar nominee Robert Getchell, but there are also a lot of tough emotional moments.

Keeping it all balanced, Burstyn portrays a woman tired of apologizing for her dreams, and ready to claim some hard-earned happiness after a lifetime of dealing with needy, overbearing men.

The birth of a queen, and the rightful coronation of Burstyn.
