Played by Debra Winger

Frances, an aging stage and screen star, is having difficulty remembering her lines for a major Broadway play and comes to Paul for help. But Paul discovers Frances's real anxiety stems from her sister's declining health - like their mother, Frances's sister is dying of breast cancer. As Frances struggles with the repercussions from her recent divorce, a teen-age daughter who won't speak to her, and the genetic probability that she will fall victim herself to breast cancer, she seeks comfort - and approval - from Paul.
