Originally released on November 23, 1983, the enduring classic (which also stars Debra Winger!) follows the ups and downs of a mother-daughter relationship with honesty, heart, and humor.

Brooks. In this newly recorded interview, Brooks reflects on the challenges and excitement that came with being a first-time director, including getting directing critiques from Jack Nicholson. He also discusses the casting process and the film’s amazing performances.

The set also includes a legacy commentary with director James L. Brooks, co-producer Penney Finkelman Cox, and production designer Polly Platt, as well as the theatrical trailer.
