Corrina, Corrina

Set in the early 1960s, this sensitive comedy-drama stars Whoopi Goldberg as a feisty housekeeper-nanny hired by a widowed ad jingle writer (Ray Liotta) to care for his 7-year-old daughter (Tina Majorino), who has been unable to speak since her mother's death. Goldberg uses her magical personality to help the young girl speak again and draw Liotta out of his sadness.

Description essential video

Ray Liotta plays a 1950s jingle composer whose wife dies, leaving him to raise their grieving young daughter (Tina Majorino) alone. Dad hires an African-American housekeeper (Whoopi Goldberg), who helps fill the gap in the child's life--and then Dad's life--and soon an interracial relationship crossing the social mores of the era is underway. Written and directed by Jessie Nelson, the film is a spot-on recreation of '50s suburbia without gratuitous kitsch. Liotta is perfect as a working man of the day, given to white shirts and narrow ties;

Goldberg gives one of her finest performances as the levelheaded Corrina; and little Majorino is heartbreakingly effective. But the film entirely bears the stamp of one person, and that's Nelson, who has a wonderfully witty eye and a sophisticated but sensitive approach to the crosscurrents of emotion at play in this story. -- Tom Keogh
