Oscar-winning account of the lives of three sisters — beautiful but lovelorn Lee, black sheep Holly, and always agreeable, even-tempered Hannah — and their families over the course of three Thanksgiving gatherings.

Boring visuals, boring characters, and a completely pointless narrative. I have such difficulty getting into much of Allen's films after Manhattan. I found the message of this film almost insulting. Extremely disappointed.
Like most of Allen's older films, ideal to watch on rainy Sunday afternoon when the themes of monogamy, unfaithfulness, lust and hypochondria are more appropriate to break with comedic excesses of Oscar deserved Michael Caine, misanthropic Max von Sydow and eternally lost Woody with a few jazz cues, little Bach, less punk and a lot of New York. Voice overs add even more challenge for actors to express with their eyes
Allen’s main strength is his writing and his ability to get good performances from his actors, and in this that is as apparent as ever. Filled with great performances, comedy, drama, and lessons, this is definitely toward the top of his filmography. After initially being slightly annoyed with Allen as an actor, the more I see of him the more I enjoy him.
