"Crimes of the Heart" tells the story of three eccentric southern sisters - Lenny (Diane Keaton), Meg (Jessica Lange)and Babe (Sissy Spacek), whose lives reunite after a long separation. Lenny, the eldest has never married and cares for her ailing grandfather. Meg has had a string of boyfriends and an underwhelming singing career. Babe, the youngest, is fresh out of jail, having shot her husband. Given the family's long history of adultery, scandal and tragedy, including their mother's well-publicised suicide, the reunited siblings have a lot to talk about!
