Winona Ryder shines in a deeply moving and touchingly funny film from Amblin Entertainment. Berkeley graduate student Finn (Ryder) is spending the summer at the home of her sparring grandmother and great aunt (Oscar winners Ellen Burstyn and Anne Bancroft). Their house is a quiet haven where Finn intends to finish her latest thesis and think over a marriage proposal. But when she meets sexy, smoldering Leon, things begin to get complicated. As she wrestles with her decision, the women in her grandmother's quilting bee confide to her the stories of the loves that shaped their own lives. Also starring Maya Angelou, Kate Nelligan, Jean Simmons, Lois Smith and Aldre Woodard, How To Make An American Quilt brings unbridled passion, true love, betrayal, joy and heartbreak vividly to life in a captivating cinematic tapestry that celebrates finding your way and following your heart.
