Boston heiress Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis) is a neurotic mess, largely because of her domineering mother (Gladys Cooper). But after a stint in a sanatorium where she is treated by Dr. Jasquith (Claude Rains), Charlotte comes out of her shell and decides to go on a cruise. Aboard ship she meets Jerry (Paul Henreid) and falls in love, despite his being married. A tender love story, a taut psychological drama, and an inspiring tale of physical and spiritual transformation, Now, Voyager gave Bette Davis her sixth Best Actress Oscar nomination.
