Lee and Bessie could not be more different and, though sisters, have not seen each other for almost two decades. During that time Lee has been raising two challenging boys on her own. Bessie has been caring for their father, along with his soap opera-obsessed sister.
Now the two are thrown together as Bessie has just been diagnosed with leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. Marvin’s Room is real, hopeful, compassionate, and absurdly funny—don’t miss it.
