This heartfelt drama stars Claudette Colbert and Louise Beavers as single mothers who become friends, and then business partners. However, financial success can’t stop the painful challenges of navigating race, gender, and class in 1930s America. Adapted from Fannie Hurst’s novel of the same name, Imitation of Life offers a moving tribute to the joy and hardships of family—the ones we’re born into, and the ones we find.
