A year and a half pass before she finally returns to claim Billy; an emotional custody battle ensues.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the novel, Joanna is much more self-centered and narcissistic, whereas in the movie, she comes off as genuinely overwhelmed and unhappy and in need of help. This was because Meryl Streep thought the character as originally written was too unsympathetic, and the filmmakers agreed with her. (So did everybody else, if $106m return on a budget of $8m and five Oscars are anything to go by.[[note]]Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor for Hoffman and Best Supporting Actress for Streep.[[/note]]

This is largely the result of Meryl Streep thinking the character as originally written was "too evil" and not realistic.

** Reinforced later on when Billy asks Ted why his mom left, and while Ted could blame Joanna for leaving, he instead tells Billy that he himself tried to make Joanna into someone else and was too selfish to listen to her when she tried to protest, and that she left not because she doesn't love Billy, but because she can't stand Ted.
