  • Cast: Illeana Douglas, John Turturro, Eric Stoltz, Matt Dillon, Patsy Kensit

Philadelphia steel heiress Edna Buxton (Douglas) wants nothing more than to be a singer and songwriter, but gawky white girl singers aren't wanted in the early 1960s, so she goes to work for fast-talking producer Joel Milner (Turturro) as a songwriter in the Brill Building. Gracefully written and beautifully acted tale of a life not unlike that of Carole King, with Douglas superb as a woman gradually discovering her own potential and Turturro unexpectedly touching as her highly eccentric mentor.
