Description by Wikipedia

Unhook the Stars is a 1996 American drama film directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring his mother Gena Rowlands, Marisa Tomei, and Gérard Depardieu. Rowlands plays Mildred, a widow who befriends the wayward Monica (Tomei), a single mother from across the street, and eventually finds herself babysitter of Monica's young son, J.J. Throughout the film, Monica and J.J. inadvertently teach Mildred valuable life lessons about herself and her relationships with others.

Rowlands and Tomei both received SAG Award nominations for their performances. The film's title refers to a song of the same name by Cyndi Lauper, which can be heard over the closing credits.
