Synopsis: Adele August (Susan Sarandon) dreams of bigger and better things than her small Wisconsin town can offer so she packs up herself and her teenaged daughter Ann (Natalie Portman) and heads to Beverly Hills.  Only Ann doesn’t appreciate having her whole life uprooted for her mother’s flights of fancy.

Kitty Cameo: At one point Adele and Ann have to return to Wisconsin after some tragedies occur back home.  In one scene Ann sits outside on the front porch with Mary (Thora Birch).  As they talk, an orange tabby cat is sitting beside Mary.
