Cinema Sirens: Now, Voyager

"Don't ask for the moon when we have the stars," goes the film's classic closing line. Bette Davis goes from frumpy to fabulous with the help of a psychiatrist who helps her get out of the shadow of her wealthy and domineering mother. Then the character falls in love with an unhappily married man, whose daughter she takes under her wing at a future point. An essential weepie.
