Foote's metaphors and psychological insights are so clearly delineated that there's little room for spontaneity, though the actors do what they can with the space they're given.
This quiet rural melodrama, based on Horton Foote's stage play, features strong peformances from Steve McQueen, Don Murray and especially Lee Remick, but it is too understated and lacks narrative drive.
Atmospheric Mulligan production with effective McQueen and Remick.
