Tales Of The City: 20th Anniversary EditionBy Acorn Media
Newly arrived in freewheeling 1970s San Francisco, wide-eyed Mary Ann Singleton (Laura Linney) quickly realizes just how far from Cleveland she really is. Moving into a funky house at 28 Barbary Lane - where her landlady (Olympia Dukakis) welcomes her with a joint - Mary Ann befriends the other residents and finds a good-natured home amid the drugs, drama, and debauchery. Based on Armistead Maupin's beloved novel, this Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries deftly chronicles the quest for love and connection across a spectrum of sexual experiences.
