Lovely & Amazing is a 2001 drama film that explores the complex relationships between a mother and her three daughters. Directed and written by Nicole Holofcener, the movie stars Catherine Keener, Brenda Blethyn, Emily Mortimer, Raven Goodwin, and Jake Gyllenhaal, among others. The story revolves around the lives of four women - Jane (Keener), Elizabeth (Mortimer), Michelle (Goodwin), and their mother, Mona (Blethyn). They are all struggling to find their place in the world, dealing with various personal and professional challenges.

Jane is a successful but insecure artist who is facing relationship troubles with her partner, a fellow artist named Aaron (Dermot Mulroney). Elizabeth is an actress who is struggling to get work and is feeling insecure about her body image. Michelle is a teenage girl who is obese and is trying to find her identity while dealing with the pressures of high school.

Mona is the glue that holds the family together, but she is also struggling to find meaning in her life. She has recently undergone liposuction and is dealing with the aftermath of the surgery.

As the story unfolds, we see how each of these women deals with their issues and how their relationships with each other evolve. Jane, for example, befriends a young nurse named Annie (Aunjanue Ellis) who helps her come to terms with her insecurities. Elizabeth, on the other hand, begins a relationship with an older man named Paul (James LeGros) who helps her gain a sense of self-worth.

Michelle, meanwhile, is struggling with her weight and is ashamed of her body. She befriends a young black boy named Jordan (Michael Nouri Jr.) who helps her realize that she is more than just her appearance. Mona, throughout it all, is trying to find her place in the world and is learning to let go of her past mistakes.

The movie is an honest and poignant portrayal of family relationships, body image issues, and the struggles of finding oneself. The performances of the cast are exceptional, with Brenda Blethyn in particular delivering a stunning performance as the matriarch of the family.

Overall, Lovely & Amazing is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates character-driven dramas that tackle complex issues with empathy and sensitivity.
