Rating: 4/5 -- Not perfect, but touching and adult; with fine work from the two leads, this is one of Mulligan's better films. Full Review

A tough and tender love story about a foot-loose musician and the Macy's salesgirl who is carrying his child. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actress--Natalie Wood, Best (Original) Story and Screenplay.

Plot Synopsis:

It is 1963, and a young woman becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with a musician at a summer resort. When she confronts him with the news, he, at first, cannot even remember the event.

But things have a strange way of working out sometimes, and she discovers that having the child might work out after all.
