A rare film that is both ferociously funny and poignantly real, PASSION FISH stars Mary McDonnell and Alfre Woodard as two women brought together by fate and united by an unlikely friendship. McDonnell earned a 1992 Oscar(r) nomination for her brilliant portrayal of a wisecracking soap opera star whoreturns home to rural Louisiana after an auto accident leaves her paralyzed. Her cruel but hilarious humor and hard-drinking drive away a succession of nurses until she meets her match in Chantelle (Woodard). Together, they explore the Louisiana bayou, as well as the murkier waters of men, romance and family. An exhilarating film that carries the viewer on waves of laughter and discovery, PASSIONFISH is the work of art you have to see.
