Description by OLDIES.com:
Director Gilbert Cates (I Never Sang for My Father) takes on the complexities of family relationships, mid-life pain and loss. Joanne Woodward and Martin Balsam play the couple coming to terms with the truth about their relationship, their fears about their homosexual son, and the mixed emotions brought on by the death of her mother (Sylvia Sidney). This rich character study resulted in two Oscar nominations, for actresses Woodward (Best Actress) and Sidney (Best Supporting Actress). Written by Stewart Stern. Newly remastered.
A fine drama about a middle-aged woman who begins to dwell on childhood memories and slowly works herself into a deep depression. How she overcomes her problems and learns to take joy and comfort in her relationships with others is the focus of the film. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Actress--Joanne Woodward, Best Supporting Actress--Sylvia Sidney.
