Based on the book about Joan Crawford, one of the great Hollywood actresses of our time, written by her adopted daughter Christina Crawford. Joan decides to adopt children of her own to fill a void in her life. Yet, her problems with alcohol, men, and the pressures of show business get in the way of her personal life, turning her into a mentally abusive wreck seen through the eyes of Christina and her brother Christopher, who unwillingly bare the burden of life that was unseen behind the closed doors of "The Most Beautiful House in Brentwood." "Winner" of five Golden Raspberry (Razzie) Awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress - Faye Dunaway (Tied with Bo Derek in "Tarzan, the Ape Man"), Worst Supporting Actor - Steve Forrest, Worst Supporting Actress - Diana Scarwid and Worst Screenplay.
