Terms of Endearment

Texas Spirit Theater

March 5, 2017 5:00pm - 8:00pm

Writer/producer/director James L. Brooks adapts Larry McMurtry's novel about the turbulent lives and times of a single mother and her daughter, played by Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger. This story of two fiercely individualistic and self-reliant Texas women was ahead of its time, and garnered five Academy Awards. With unforgettable turns from Jack Nicholson (in one of his most memorable roles), John Lithgow, Danny DeVito and Jeff Daniels.

Austin Film Society is proud to present Terms of Endearment, the 2017 Texas Film Awards Star Of Texas Award honoree.
