La star del cinema Joan Crawford si trova in una fase delicata della sua carriera: il suo successo è in lento declino, la sua relazione con l'avvocato Gregg Savitt è resa problematica dal fatto che Joan ha scoperto di non poter avere bambini. Insieme al compagno decide di adottare una bambina bionda e dagli occhi azzurri a cui dà il nome di Christina. Nove anni dopo, Joan ha adottato un altro bambino a cui ha dato il nome di Christopher e porta avanti una sua personale visione dell'educazione nei confronti di Christina. Joan offre tutti i doni ricevuti da Christina per il compleanno ad un orfanotrofio, la punisce duramente ogni volta per futili motivi, ad esempio quando la scopre mentre si sta truccando e abbigliando come la madre. Joan umilia e punisce sempre più spesso Christina: la picchia quando scopre che ha posto un suo vestito su una gruccia di ferro, o distrugge il suo bagno perchè il pavimento non è pulito. La rabbia di Joan esplode in continuazione e Christina è il suo bersag lio preferito. Passano gli anni e Christina tenta i suoi primi passi come attrice, boicottata dalla madre che addirittura le ruba la parte in una serie televisiva. Negli ultimi anni della sua vita, Joan sposa Alfred Steele, amministratore delegato della Pepsi Cola, utilizzando i suoi soldi per mantenere l'alto stile di vita a cui è abituata. Alfred muore e Joan rimane nel consiglio di amministrazione confrontandosi in modo aspro con gli altri consiglieri. Negli ultimi anni di vita di Joan il rapporto con i figli sembra essere entrato in una fase meno violenta, ma alla morte dell'attrice, Christina e Christopher scoprono con stupore che la madre li ha diseredati, "per motivi che loro bene conoscono", come è scritto nel testamento. Christina dice allora a Christopher che ha deciso di scrivere un libro in cui raccontare la sua esperienza e vendicare così le angherie subite

Outrageous and controversial, this is the story of legendary movie star Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) as she struggles for her career and battles the inner demons of her private life. This torment was manifested in her relationships with her adopted children, Christina (Diana Scarwid) and Christopher (Xander Berkeley). The public Crawford was a strong-willed, glamorous object of admiration, but Mommie Dearest reveals the private Crawford, the woman desperate to be a mother, adopting her children when she was single and trying to survive in a devastating industry that swallows careers thoughtlessly. The rage, the debilitating strain, and the terrifying descent into alcoholism and child abuse are graphically - and unforgettably depicted in this film, based upon Christina Crawford's best-selling book
No safe place : the legacy of family violence by Christina Crawford( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the Publisher: Christina Crawford's devastating memoir Mommie Dearest (over 5,000,000 sold), first as book and later as Hollywood film, made the American public aware of violence in the family. In No Safe Place, drawing further on her personal story, but adding sociological research and case histories, the author shows how family violence is responsible for addictive behavior, depression, sleep disorders, chronic illness, suicide, delinquency, homelessness, and apparently "mindless" violent crime. A call to action, this impassioned book offers the hope that in facing the truth about our families we can save our society and ourselves
