Thanksgiving movies: ”Hannah and Her Sisters”

PILGRIMS Three consecutive Thanksgiving dinners mark milestones in the lives of Hannah (Mia Farrow, left), her sisters Holly (Dianne Wiest, right), and Lee (Barbara Hershey), and the rest of their extended family.

FAMILY SECRET Hannah’s husband Elliot (Michael Caine) embarks on an affair with her sister, Lee.

MEMORABLE LINE Hannah’s ex-husband Mickey (Woody Allen) notes that Nietzsche ”said that the life we lived we’re gonna live over again the exact same way for eternity. Great. That means I’ll have to sit through the Ice Capades again. ”

FUN WITH FOOD At one holiday dinner, a relative serves Heineken to the kids.

SIDE DISH Not only did Farrow’s mother, Maureen O’Sullivan, play Hannah’s mom, but several of her kids (including Soon-Yi Previn) play Hannah’s kids, and Farrow’s apartment overlooking New York’s Central Park was used as Hannah’s apartment.
