Drawn from the life and letters of Ann Landers
“Dear Ann…” For decades, renowned advice columnist Ann Landers answered countless letters from lovelorn teens, confused couples and a multitude of others in need of advice. No topic was off-limits, from sibling rivalries to nude housekeeping to the proper way to hang toilet paper! Landers regaled her readers with direct, insightful and often humorously honest responses. Late on a 1975 night in Landers’ Chicago apartment, with a looming deadline for a column, Landers must deal with a new kind of heartbreak: her own. “a smile-inducing, tear duct-activating reunion with a woman who might have been a stranger but seemed like family…engaging from beginning to end.” – The L.A. Times.
