Jessica Lange and Halle Berry give performances of uncommon poignancy and depth. Lange plays an adoptive mother who gives an abandoned child a new chance at life. Berry, in a remarkable portrayal heralded as her dramatic breakthrough, is the birth mother who cleans up her life and sets out to reclaim the child. Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) portrays her firebrand attorney.
