Despite numerous challenges to their quiet life in 1930s Ireland, life goes on for five unmarried sisters in this adaptation of Brian Friel's renowned play. Powerhouse actors Meryl Streep, Catherine McCormack and Sophie Thompson portray women who provide emotional support for each other in times of trouble -- especially when their elderly brother (Michael Gambon) comes home from missionary work in Africa to die.
