Ordinary People is a story of the disintegration of an upper middle-class family living in Lake Forrest, Illinois following the death of one of their two sons in a boating accident. The film focuses primarily on the surviving son, his guilt, and the relationship to his parents. It also portrays an extraordinary therapeutic relationship between the surviving son and his psychiatrist. The film is a remarkable psychological study of stress, survivor guilt, and family dysfunction. Ordinary People won an Academy Award for both Best Picture and Best Direction.
