Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter

With remarkable insight and a healthy dose of levity, a daughter chronicles the various stages of her mother's Alzheimer's Disease as well as the evolution of her own response to this illness. The desire to cure the incurable - to set right her mother's confusion and forgetfulness, and temper her mother's obsessiveness - gives way to an acceptance which is finally liberating for both daughter and mother. This is an exploration not just of Alzheimer's and family caregiving, but also the meaning of change, memory, and love. 1995 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary.
