Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 09/10/2004
"[A] still-absorbing drama..."
Premiere - 11/01/2004
"[T]he real value of this film lies in Shirley Booth, whose flawless, heart-tearing performance is worth every square inch of the Best Actress Oscar she won for giving it."

Product Description:

An attractive female boarder (Terry Moore) stirs the barely-hidden seeds of contempt between a tired, disappointed housewife (Shirley Booth) and her washed-up, alcoholic doctor husband (Burt Lancaster). Great performances bring William Inge's intense 1950 stage play of broken dreams and marital resentment to life on the big screen, garnering Booth a well-deserved Academy Award for Best Actress and a nomination for Moore as Best Supporting Actress.

Plot Synopsis:

A couple, none too gracefully settled into middle age, find their lives irreparably changed when they take in a lovely new lodger. The wife suffers from the knowledge that her husband is enamored of the young girl, while he finds himself tormented by the lodger's sexual involvement with another man.
