Dr. T & the Women

Dr. T & the Women

Available on iTunes, Prime Video, Tubi TV
Director Robert Altman re-teams with Cookie's Fortune scribe Anne Rapp for this tale of a Dallas gynecologist and the parade of anxious patients, haggard family members, and potential love interests who come his way. Richard Gere plays the titular role of Dr. Sullivan Travis, a calm, successful, and much sought-after ob-gyn who witnesses his normally stable life come apart over the course of one rainy autumn. As the film opens, Dr. T and his wife Kate are preparing for the wedding of their Dallas Cowboys cheerleader daughter Dee Dee. Their other daughter ù the Kennedy-assassination conspiracy theorist Connieù has her doubts about the impending nuptials, but Dr. T chalks them up to routine sibling jealousy. Meanwhile, escaping a messy divorce, boozy sister-in-law Peggy moves into the Travis household with her three toddler daughters in tow. For release, Dr. T finds solace target shooting and golfing (occasionally at the same time) with his buddies; and at his country club, he meets a beguiling golf pro, Bree. When the child-like Kate loses her grip on reality during a flatware shopping spree, Bree offers to give the kindly doctor some lessons in his swing, both on and off the fairways.
