Description by OLDIES.com:
Based on the Robert Anderson play, it is the story of an 80-year-old man's dominance over his widowed son, and belligerence towards his daughter who married a Jew. The son tries unsuccessfully to communicate with his father after his mother's death, and the years of competition and looking for recognition cause futility.
A fine cinematic version of Robert Anderson's semi-autobiographical stage play about a middle-aged widower, played by Hackman, who is still trying to win the approval of his distant father. A bleak but believable turn of events forces him to choose between moving far away to marry the woman he loves or staying to care for the parental curmudgeon. Many will relate to this family drama which was adapted for the screen by Anderson.
