The Stone Angel Poster 2Deutscher Kurzinhalt:

So stolz und eigensinnig wie sie ihr ganzes Leben gelebt hat, so sturköpfig weigert sich die alt gewordene Hagar Shipley in ein Altersheim umzuziehen. Als ihr Sohn sie vor vollendete Tatsachen stellt, reißt Hagar einfach aus. Sie kehrt in ihren Heimatort zurück. Die Nacht in ihrem alten verfallenen Haus ist voller Erinnerungen an das Leben, das hinter ihr liegt. Mit ihrem unbeugsamen Streben nach Unabhängigkeit und ihrem Stolz hat sie sich selbst und denen, die sie geliebt hat, viele Wunden zugefügt. Jetzt wird es Zeit, endgültig Bilanz zu ziehen.

Englischer Kurzinhalt:

Ellen Burstyn gives a tour-de-force performance in this much-anticipated adaptation of Margaret Laurence’s landmark Canadian novel. The story leaps onto the screen with elegance and ease, beautifully fulfilling the emotional power of the original work.

As flinty and immovable as the Stone Angel itself, Hagar Shipley is defined by the fierce pride she inherited from her father. Facing imminent death, and refusing to yield even to mortality, Hagar’s mind conflates past and present as she makes a final grasp for independence, finding instead an unexpected and humbling reconciliation.

Now living with her son Marvin (Dylan Baker), elderly Hagar (Burstyn) is brought to a nursing home – to see what she thinks. Her response is easily predicted, and she later bolts from her son’s house, determined to find a seaside home she remembers from her youth. Throughout this journey, chapters in her life coalesce and we come to know the radiant young woman – scion of her father’s mercantile empire – who is disowned when she marries the rough, bold Bram Shipley (Cole Hauser). Romantic illusions soon dissipate, and Hagar begins to think her husband is beneath her. Her disdain for him, exacerbated by discontent with her own unfulfilled ambitions, incites a hereditary flaw as she denies her children the parental approval she so desired from her father. In the present, Hagar finds her way to the seashore, but has little time left to amend a lifetime of unacknowledged mistakes.
