"Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" (1974)

One of my all-time favs. Ellen Burstyn plays a newly widowed mother trying to get her life back on track with a bratty son in tow...she finds friends and love (rancher Kris Kristofferson) while slinging hash at Mel's Diner. The unlikely director was Martin Scorsese who keeps things real and surprisingly off kilter, sometimes scarily so. Look for a pre-"Taxi Driver" Jodie Foster who steals the show.
