When hubby Ed Harris ships off to fight WWII, housewife Hawn finds herself via a factory job—and a fling with hunky trumpeter Kurt Russell. Despite a contentious relationship between director and star, Hawn here displays her greatest emotional range, and Demme’s deft touch for humanist comedy shines through. Featuring Christine Lahti, Fred Ward, and Holly Hunter.

A film by Jonathan Demme
