  • Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter

    1994. USA. Directed by Deborah Hoffman. This life-affirming exploration of family relations, aging and change, the meaning of memory, and love chronicles the progression of a mother's Alzheimer's disease and the evolution of her daughter’s (the filmmaker) response to the illness. Hoffman's desire to cure the incurable—to assuage her mother's confusion, forgetfulness, and obsessiveness—gradually gives way to an acceptance that proves liberating for both daughter and mother.
