Terms of Endearment
A beautiful adaptation of a movie classic, using a light touch to illuminate the deepest and most important expressions of compassion and human decency, Dan Gordon’s brilliant rewriting of 1983’s blockbuster film takes the theatre audience through 23 years of mother-daughter conflict and angst. There is not a wasted word.
Director Anthony Brown is a resident of Leonay, who as a young man remembers the famous movie which starred Shirley Maclaine, Jack Nicholson and Debra Winger. Anthony was fortunate to meet Shirley Maclaine in the 1980’s and got her autograph. Mr. Brown says, “Shirley Maclaine was everything I imagined when I met her, and I told her how much I loved her performance in Terms of Endearment which delighted her”. Playing the classic role Shirley Maclaine won her only Academy Award in is well known Australian actress Oriana Panozzo. She is best known for her role in Sons and Daughters.
