"Have all my Walter Raleighs died'"
  - Calla Mackie (Estelle Parsons) to school children

Product Description:

A 35-year-old teacher (Joanne Woodward) longs for love and fears that she's in danger of remaining a spinster unless she makes important changes in her life. Then a male friend from childhood (James Olson) suddenly turns up again, and she mistakenly believes she's found the answer to her problems. Melancholy infuses this sensitive story, set in a small New England town and based on the novel JEST OF GOD by Margaret Laurence. Paul Newman took the reins as director when he couldn't attract interest in the project, casting his wife (Woodward) in the lead. It was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best (Adapted) Screenplay.
