Ordinary People

Donald Sutherland and Mary Tyler Moore star in this intense drama about this couple's teenaged son going through mental difficulties as a result of his older brother's tragic death. It's powerful and engaging with strong dramatic performances from Sutherland and Moore who normally thrive best in comedies. This is Robert Redford's first directing attempt and it's truly magnificent!
