Rating:
R
Heartaches is a 1981 Canadian dramatic comedy written by Terence Heffernan and directed by Donald Shebib. Bonnie Howard (Annie Potts) is a young woman married to an immature and drunkard stock car driver (Robert Carradin). She is also pregnant with her husband's best friend's child. Tired of her life, and fearful of telling her husband the truth, Bonnie flees from home looking to have an abortion in Toronto. On the bus ride out of town, she meets Rita Harris (Margot Kidder), an older and slightly eccentric woman. The two women quickly strike up a deep friendship. Bonnie decides to move in with Rita and have the baby. Together, the two women raise the child as their own. However, life is not so easy. Both women struggle with work and romance. Much of the movie's humor comes from their duo's struggle to live together; they are very much an odd couple. Bonnie is modest and shy, while Ritt is flamboyant and man-hungry.moreless
