Now, Voyager (1942)

Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis, 19081989) attempts to free herself from her psychologically traumatizing and abusive mother by entering a sanitarium under the advice of her psychiatrist, Dr. Jaquith (Claude Rains, 1889–1967). As she rebuilds herself, she falls in love with Jeremiah (Jerry) Duvaux Durrance (Paul Henreid, 1908–1992), a married man. His daughter Tina (Janis Wilson, 1930–) suffers from a relationship with a dominating and abusive mother as well. At the end of the film, Tina joins Charlotte in the sanitarium. When Jeremiah wants more out of the relationship, Charlotte utters the famous line:  “Oh Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.”
