Movie Summary

Director:
Woody Allen
Released:
1986
Rating:
PG-13
Hannah and Her Sisters is a comedic drama about one year in the life of a deeply intertwined family. The film begins at a Thanksgiving party thrown by Hannah (Mia Farrow) and her husband, Elliott (Michael Caine). Unbeknownst to Hannah, Elliott has fallen in love with her sister, Lee (Barbara Hershey) and shortly thereafter begins a love affair with her. Lee, meanwhile, has just left her own lover, Frederick (Max von Sydow) because she found him to be terribly patronizing. At the same time, Hannah's ex-husband, Mickey (Woody Allen) has started dating Hannah's cocaine-addicted sister Holly (Dianne Wiest) while battling his own severe hypochondria. Over a year, we see how the dynamics of the family change. Elliott and Lee begin to question their affair, while Mickey slowly begins to fall in love with Holly. As another Thanksgiving party approaches, we see how dramatically the lives of everyone have changed over the year.

Metacritic Score

  • 100

    Variety

    He (Allen) makes nary a misstep from beginning to end in charting the amorous affiliations of three sisters and their men over a two-year period.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Allen's writing and directing style is so strong and assured in this film that the actual filmmaking itself becomes a narrative voice.

    The New York Times Vincent Canby

    Virtually nonstop exhilaration--a dramatic comedy not quite like any other, and one that sets new standards for Mr. Allen as well as for all American moviemakers. [7 February 1986]
