Summary, etc.:
Films of Endearment is a heartwarming memoir, chronicling a young man's dynamic relationship with his mother, as told through the 80s movies they shared together, exploring themes of loss and resilience, the bonds between family, gender equality, and the birth of a critic's sensibility.
Koresky's most formative memories were simple ones: A movie rental. A mug of tea. And a few shared hours with his mother. Now a successful film critic, he set out on a journey with his mother to discover more about their shared cinematic past. They rewatched ten films that she first introduced to him as a child, one from every year of the '80s, each featuring women leads. Together these films form the story of an era that Koresky argues should rightly be called "The Decade of the Actress." -- adapted from jacket
