<i>Mommie Dearest</i>

Paramount Pictures


Sun., May 14, 7:30 p.m. 2017

Joan Crawford has been getting some good press lately thanks to the success of FX's Feud, but it may take more than that to replace the image that Mommie Dearest burned into the public consciousness. Based on a tell-all memoir by Joan's adopted daughter, Christina Crawford, Frank Perry's camp classic chronicles the abusive matriarchy that became the stuff of Hollywood legend. This Mother's Day screening at the Egyptian Theatre should ensure plenty of uncomfortable post-viewing conversation. Come for the sound parental advice ("No wire hangers ... ever!"), stay for Faye Dunaway's volcanic performance, which transcends trite designations of "good" and "bad."
