Movie Info

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Paul Zindel, this is a joint effort of husband and wife team Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. Produced and directed by Newman, Woodward portrays the eccentric young widow who is raising her two disparate daughters in an atmosphere of bitterness, hatred and over-protection that threatens their very growth and development. Embittered and misandristic, she raises her daughters in an atmosphere of hate that leaves them as depressed and neurotic as she is.

The talents of everyone connected with it are unmistakable, including those of Mr. Newman... It's just that the basic material calls for a kind of second-rate bravura performance from everyone, from the production designer to the actors.

Sentimental without really being tender, naturalistic without being real.

Newman and Woodward's daughter Potts steals the movie, but what makes it so watchable is Newman's reluctance to sentimentalise.

Producer-director Paul Newman has made his finest behind-the-camera film to date in the screen version of Paul Zindel's play.

Joanne Woodward's performance is not like anything she's ever done before.

Joanne Woodward is superb.

Joanne Woodward's high-decibel output comes across like a distaff version of Jon Lovitz' Master Thespian.
