Hannah And Her Sisters

5

Three sisters, one husband and one ex...

From 1986, when Woody Allen's strike rate was more consistent, this triple Oscar-winner is one of his best. Mia Farrow plays the title role, an acclaimed actress with a seemingly idyllic family life.

But husband Michael Caine has the hots for youngest sister Barbara Hershey, while middle sister Dianne Wiest is a recovering drug addict pin-balling from one ill-advised career choice to another.

Allen is Hannah’s ex-husband, as neurotic and nebbish as ever. Around these characters the film weaves a rich Chekhovian mix, full of wry insights into the fragility of human emotions.
