"Leaving Normal" (1992) Directed by Edward Zwick
Meg shines as Marianne Johnson, slightly naive and quite familiar with life's problems and failures. She decides to escape an abusive marriage and hits the road, where she meets Darly, played by Christine Lahti. Darly is just as hard core as Marianne is innocent, and she also is about to make changes in her life. The two team up and hit the road. Along the way, they meet several crazy characters and find themselves in outrageous situations - all of which lead to both Marianne and Darly growing and discovering themselves as they experience the results of the choices they make along the way.
