Audience Reviews for Uncommon Women... and Others


Meryl Streep is in this production, but she is NOT the star. She is, of course, very good, but her role is much smaller than about 5 others. Also, this was made in 1978 and is a reflection of what became of women attending college at that time. It's very feminist and definitely not for everyone, but I'd recommend it to 20 somethings whose mothers are about that age and men who married women of those years. It explains a lot!!!!
