10- Dr. T & The Women
Dr. Sullivan Travis, Richard Gere is a rich and successful Dallas gynecologist whose "religion" is women. In his immediate family and in his office, they surround him. He is loving and giving to each and every one at all times; he is their savior and would have it no other way. And as in the story of Job, one day a higher force decides to test his faith. Once a man in complete control of his universe, Dr. T now finds himself buffeted by chaos and confusion. The doctor of choice for the city's society elite, Dr. T is steadily losing ground to his overbooked scheduled. His home life starts to boil over with his zealous wife, Farrah Fawcett, planning their daughter's wedding. Adding to the chaos, Dr. T's champagne-loving sister-in-law Peggy, Laura Dern has moved in with her three kids. Overwhelmed, Dr. T begins spending more time at his country club's golf course, adding a new woman to his life; an easy-going golf pro. This burgeoning affair further adds to the whirlwind of confusion surrounding him.
