Imitation of life
1959
 
In Douglas Sirk's emotionally and visually extravagant final film, Lana Turner is Lora Meredith, an aspiring actress and single mother who meets Annie Johnson, a black and similarly single and struggling mother. The two women move in together and face a huge challenge as they try to raise their children -- especially Annie's daughter, who, favoring her extremely fair-skinned father, slowly comes to resent her mother's black identity.

Very powerful movie. Elements of racism, women's lib and love all mixed into one fine film. The strongest note to this movie is the end, were you learn the meaning of regret.
