Dolores Claiborne is suspected of killing Vera Donovan, her wealthy employer, and when the police question her, she tells the story of her life, harkening back to her disintegrating marriage and the suspicious death of her violent husband thirty years earlier. Dolores also tells of Vera’s physical and mental decline and how she became emotionally demanding in recent years. Given a voice as compelling as any in contemporary fiction, the strange intimacy between Dolores and Vera—and the link that binds them—unfolds in Dolores’s account.

Download and read online Weird Lullabies in PDF and EPUB This book focuses on the mother-daughter relationship as it features in a number of films from the 1990s onwards. Bringing the insights of psychoanalysis and feminism to bear on a diverse and compelling range of representations of the mother-daughter dynamic, the author addresses a range of questions relating to the social, historical and cultural conditions which go to inform the female experience. These include, in relation to "Dolores Claiborne," "Heavenly Creatures" and "The Others," an exploration of different forms of familial violence and resistance to it and in "One True Thing," "Stepmom" and "Pieces of April," questions about the construction of the ideal mother and her loss. From "The" "Piano"'s engagement with French feminism and "Losing Chase"'s reworking of the life and work of Virginia Woolf to the depiction of cross-racial relationships during apartheid in "Friends," the films that go to make up this study all share a central concern with both the literal and symbolic forms that the mother-daughter relationship encompasses.
