Description by OLDIES.com:

"It's a very real film about two people trying to get through to each other," director Richard Lester (A Hard Day's Night) says of his landmark romance Petulia, set in summer-of-love-era San Francisco. There, Julie Christie plays an unhappily married socialite trying to get through to a recently divorced doctor (George C. Scott), who in his own words just wants to "feel something." He'll soon feel, even hurt, a lot. Because we know why kooky Petulia so desperately reaches out. As Lester zigzags through the flashbacks and flash-forwards of cinematographer Nicolas Roeg's startling images and Lawrence B. Marcus' knowing screenplay, Petulia's jigsaw pieces form a celluloid time capsule of life and love in the turbulent '60s.

Product Description:

A film very much of its time -- the swinging '60s -- "Petulia" is also a timeless study of romantic relationships in a consumer society. It is filmed in a fragmented, jumpy style, that is nonetheless powerful and effective.
A prominent San Francisco surgeon's life is turned upside down when he falls in love with an eccentric young woman caught in an unhappy marriage with a sadistic man. Can this odd couple's love transcend the conventions of their upper-class world'
