How to Make an American Quilt

1995 PG-13

Based on a novel by Whitney Otto, Jocelyn Moorhouse's directorial debut looks at relationships of all kinds -- romantic, platonic and familial. Finn Dodd (Winona Ryder), a graduate student having second thoughts about her fiancé (Dermot Mulroney) and marriage, spends the summer with her grandmother (Ellen Burstyn), her great-aunt (Anne Bancroft) and their quilting circle, whose life stories captivate the conflicted young woman.
