Overview

Two young girls find themselves growing up fast when love and tragedy visit their mother in this made-for-cable drama based on the novel by Karin Cook. Elizabeth (Tamara Hope) and Tilden (Alison Pill) are sisters growing up in Atlanta, GA, with their single mother (Elizabeth Perkins). Elizabeth and Tilden's lives are turned upside down when Mother announces that's she's getting married to Nick (Scott Bakula), a man from New York whom they've never met. Nick turns out to be a good and understanding man, but while Elizabeth easily accepts him into the family, Tilden makes no secret of her distrust of her new stepfather. However, Tilden's feelings about Nick take a back seat in the family's list of priorities when Mother discovers she has cancer, and as Elizabeth, and Tilden try to deal with this crisis, they are forced to deal with the intrusive presence of their uncle. What Girls Learns was produced for the Showtime premium cable network, where it first aired on October 14, 2001.

    A riveting , heart wrenching tale.

    Nothing lifts my spirits up like a movie based on the relationship between a mother (Elizabeth Perkins) and her two daughters played by relative new comers (Alison Pill & Amanda Hope). This coming of age tale set in circa. 1981 depicts the struggles of puberty and finding one's own identity. Nick ( Scott Bakula) comes into their lives and moves them from Georgia up to New York's Long Island to live with him in his house. They struggle to become a family and encounter obsticles along the way that test their true strength, spirit and love for one another. This movie makes you appreciate the little things in life and to never take your family for granted.
