Frank Perry's soft, romanticized look at two misfits in an asylumn, played by the attractive Keir Dullea and Janet Margolin, this early indie film became a campus favorite in the 1960s and led the way to the rise of independent cinema in the 1970s.

Margolin and Dullea are two underrated actors who are brilliant in this 'love at the mental home' movie
