In Sisters on Screen, Eva Rueschmann explores the sister bond in a wide range of modernist feature films that depart from the conventional cinematic rendering of women's lives. Drawing on the psychoanalytic concept of inter-subjectivity, this book emphasizes the role of a woman's relationship and inner world in her continual quest for self-knowledge. The book includes in-depth discussions of An Angel at My Table, Double Happiness, Eve's Bayou, Gas Food Lodging, Heavenly Creatures, Little Women, Marianne and Julianne, Paura e amore, Peppermint Soda, The Silence, Sweetie, and Welcome to the Dollhouse.
