The Amati Girls is a 2001 drama film written and directed by Anne De Salvo. It stars Cloris Leachman, Mercedes Ruehl, Dinah Manoff, Sean Young, Lily Knight, Lee Grant, and Edith Fields.
This is the only film released theatrically in which Lee Grant and her daughter, Dinah Manoff, appeared together and was Manoff's first theatrical film in over 10 years, with her previous one being Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael.
The film centers around an Italian American family of four sisters (Mercedes Ruehl, Dinah Manoff, Sean Young, and Lily Knight) who reside in Philadelphia. After their father's death, in trying to convince their mother (Cloris Leachman) that her life is still worth living, each sister grapples with her own ideas on love, faith, and ultimately, the meaning of life.
