Rating:
PG
Corrina, Corrina is the story of a family reclaiming life after the loss of a loved one and developing a new family that is as unorthodox as it is touching. When Manny Singer (Ray Liotta) loses his wife to cancer, he hardly knows how to be the strong father that his young daughter, Molly (Tina Majorino), needs. His daughter runs from the situation emotionally and retracts into silence and surrender. Manny hardly knows what to do, so he hires the sassy nanny Corrina Washington (Whoopi Goldberg) to manage their home. Corrina nearly fails the job interview because her educational credentials overqualify her, but when Manny sees how she interacts with Molly, he decides to keep her. Corrina quickly charms the family, bringing Molly back into the world she has escaped, and growing closer to Manny than 1950s American society will allow. The interracial couple must find themselves and navigate the new realities of this piecemeal family in a way that will protect Molly. It's a touching, sincere story of love and family in the face of terrible odds.moreless
