Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)

Whatever you take from Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, one thing that cannot be in question is the quality of Ellen Burstyn’s charismatic lead performance as the witty but emotionally vulnerable single mother who tries her best for both herself and her son but finds herself increasingly ill equipped for her life on the road. The commitment, energy and kooky charm she brings to the performance proves that this was clearly her baby, and she rightly gives it her all...
