Summary
Michael Koresky's most formative memories were simple ones. A movie rental. A bowl of popcorn. And a few shared hours with his mother. Through the films they watched together, he gained insight into his mother's perspective and the values she hoped to instill. Decades later and now a successful film critic, Koresky set out on a journey with his mother to discover more about their shared cinematic past. They rewatched ten films, one from every year of the '80s, each featuring women in leading roles. Films like 9 to 5, Terms of Endearment, The Color Purple, and Working Girl played a powerful role in Michael's developing consciousness as a gay man and helped solidify an unspoken bond between mother and son
