Screen legends, Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep, star with Fred Gwynn and Tom Waits in this bittersweet story of haunting memories and the harsh realities of life on the streets. It's winter, 1938 in Albany, New York. The soup kitchens and flophouses are overflowing with homeless people seeking food and refuge from the unforgiving cold. Francis Phelan (Nicholson), an aimless vagabond ready to confront the family he abandoned long ago, wanders the streets back in his hometown after a 22 year absence. While sharing his whiskey with longtime "pal" Helen (Streep), Francis reveals the dark secrets of his past, the painful memories from which he cone tried to escape... but now must reconcile. The stellar cast includes Carroll baker, Michael O'Keefe, Diane Venora, Margret Whitton, Ted Levine, James Gammon, Frank Whaley and Nathan Lane. Directed by Hector Babenco (Kiss Of The Spider Woman). Ironweed netted Academy Award nominations for Nicholson and Streep.
