How do you assemble a wonderful ensemble and then waste their talents? Here's an example.
The well-made play and once well-thought of film seems to be lifeless when viewed today.
Terence Rattigan's old-fashioned melodrama is well-acted by the entire ensemble. Surprisingly, it was nominated for Best Picture and garnered Oscars for David Nivel as a Major with fake identity and Wendy Hiller as the reserved hotel manager.
Very strong, controversial (for 1958) drama starring Hayworth, Kerr.
Drama com excelentes atuações (especialmente de Niven e Kerr), Vidas Separadas possui roteiro enxuto que extrai o máximo de sua galeria de personagens patéticos que buscam a dignidade.
