Before Women Had Wings (1997)

A variation on a theme common to many of Oprah's films — domestic abuse — Winfrey this time plays a woman who helps rescue two young girls from a dysfunctional household and an abusive mother. Oprah also donned the producer's hat for the television film, which won an Emmy award and was nominated for a Golden Globe.
