Crimes of the Heart is the heart-warming and sometimes shocking story of how much trouble three sisters can get into – and how to get out of it – with the help of course of that nice young lawyer fella.
Winner Pulitzer Prize for Drama 1981, Best American Play 1981, Oscar nomination – Best Screen adaptation 1987.
Lenny can't get a man, Meg has too many, and Babe just shot hers.
Join the quirky McGrath sisters as they fight to get little Babe off a murder charge, bake a cake, fall in love in a hurricane, and hide some compromising photographs. The McGrath sisters do love each other... once they stop fighting.
