It is a universal tale of fathers and daughters, mothers and sons trying to maintain some order in their lives amidst the rapid changes that every generation must forge. It is a spectacle that is at once awe-inspiring and accessible, a cultural landmark like no other. And more than ever, it is relevant to today.
