One True Thing

1998 Rated R 2hr 8m

When a tough New Yorker (Renée Zellweger) learns her mother (Meryl Streep, in an Oscar-nominated performance) has cancer, she quits her job, breaks up with her boyfriend and moves back in with her parents to help out. But she inadvertently uncovers several family secrets, including one about her philandering father (William Hurt).
