“Based on Christina Crawford’s controversial best-selling tell-all novel, Mommie Dearest features a powerhouse performance by Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford, struggling for her career while battling the inner demons of her private life. While the public Crawford was a strong-willed, glamorous object of admiration, behind the scenes is a private Crawford – the woman desperate to be a single mother and trying to survive in a devastating industry that swallows careers thoughtlessly.”
