Something to Talk About is a 1995 American comedy-drama film directed by Lasse Hallström, from a screenplay written by Callie Khouri. It stars Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid as an estranged couple, Kyra Sedgwick as Roberts' sister, and Robert Duvall and Gena Rowlands as their parents.

The film's title stems from the Bonnie Raitt song of the same name. It was shot in various locations around Savannah, Georgia, South Carolina and Georgia near Beaufort (see movie credits and acknowledgements).


Grace (Julia Roberts) discovers that her husband, Eddie (Dennis Quaid), is having an affair with another woman. To her surprise, she also discovers that people around her advise her to forgive and forget instead of making an issue out of it. She doesn't agree, and takes her young daughter back to her parents' ranch to live in a cabin with her sister, Emma Rae (Kyra Sedgwick), who is furious at Eddie and lets him know it. Her father (Robert Duvall) owns a hunter/jumper horse farm and thinks that they should instead concentrate on an upcoming competition.



The film earned mixed reviews from critics, with Rotten Tomatoes giving this film a 37% rating based on 27 reviews.


Sedgwick was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
