Synopsis: Short Synopsis: After her ailing mother wanders off during a blizzard, Bridget returns to her childhood home in Chicago, accompanied by her rebellious college-age daughter. Forced to referee between her fathers stubborn insistence that his wife remain at home and her equally determined brothers efforts to place her in a sought-after memory care facility, Bridget struggles to make sense of a lifetime of family conflict. With her mothers decline becoming increasingly obvious, long-simmering resentments make an already difficult decision close to impossible. Starring Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon, Blythe Danner, Robert Forster, Taissa Farmiga and Josh Lucas, What They Had is an intimate and tender story of a challenge faced by many families.
