Synopsis – What to Expect from “Terms of Endearment”
Terms of Endearment tells the story of Aurora Greenway (Shirley MacLaine) and her daughter Emma (Debra Winger). Aurora is a strong-willed, opinionated woman who is determined to make her daughter’s life as successful as possible. However, Emma has her own ideas about how to live her life.
The story begins with Aurora and Emma’s relationship strained due to Emma’s rebellious behavior. Aurora is determined to find a suitable husband for Emma, but Emma resists her mother’s efforts. Despite their differences, the two share a strong bond.
Emma eventually marries Flap Horton (Jeff Daniels), a charming and successful astronaut. The couple moves to Houston, Texas, and Emma begins to build a successful career as a writer. Aurora visits often, but the visits become more strained as Emma’s independence grows.
Meanwhile, Aurora meets and falls in love with a retired naval officer, Garrett Breedlove (Jack Nicholson). The couple embarks on a passionate affair, but Aurora is unable to fully commit to the relationship.
The story takes a dramatic turn when Emma and Flap’s marriage begins to unravel due to Flap’s infidelity. Emma and Flap eventually divorce and Emma returns to Aurora’s home.
Aurora and Emma’s relationship is tested further when Garrett proposes to Aurora. Emma is initially opposed to the marriage, but eventually comes to accept it.
