Imitation of Life - Carolina Classic Movies June 16, 7:00 pm

When they first meet, Lora Meredith and Annie Johnson find they have a lot in common: they are both single mothers struggling to make a life for themselves and their daughters. Lora is an aspiring actress who needs help looking after her daughter when she goes out on casting calls; Annie, an African American widow, is a woman who desperately wants a healthy home environment in which to raise her daughter. They soon share a tiny apartment with their daughters, with Annie becoming the caretaker of Lora's child Suzie. While Lora's thirst for fame threatens her relationship with Suzie, Annie's light-skinned daughter Sarah Jane struggles with her black identity.
