Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Vera: Sometimes, Dolores... sometimes, 
you have to be a high-riding bitch to survive. 
Sometimes, being a bitch is all a woman has to hang onto. 

Dolores Claiborne came out 20 years ago today!

Such an underrated movie. The book is fantastic, also.

What Sean said!

I don't know which is the better scene: this one or the casual dismissal at the eclipse party, when Vera orders Dolores to go kill her abusive husband this instant.

Plus freaky Magritte homage. So good.

Incredible film adaptation. Every actor did an amazing job. And the book was such a revelation when I read it. No chapters or double-spaced paragraph breaks? I couldn't put it down.

I love this movie. I thought I read somewhere a long time ago it was written for Cathy Bates to play based upon her acting in Misery.
