Movie Info

Written off as a spinster, 35-year-old schoolteacher Rachel Cameron (Joanne Woodward) lives with her widowed mother above a funeral parlor in rural Connecticut. Repressed by the community and given to despondency, Rachel spends her time daydreaming, buoyed by her lesbian best friend, Calla (Estelle Parsons). A religious experience begins a subtle awakening in Rachel, and when a childhood friend returns to town for his father's funeral, she experiences real, driving passion.

    Newman's direction of his wife is poignant at times but this isn't due to Joanne Woodward who is fabulous in the lead role.

    A bit flawed by the excess of flashbacks and oniric sequences. Nevertheless, amazing performance by Mrs. Newman

    Joanne Woodward stars a Rachel, a timid and sexually frustrated 35-year old schoolteacher who's desperate for a change in her life; a summer fling throws her emotions into chaos. A slow, quiet film about ordinary sadness and triumph; the movie requires a star turn from Woodward to pull it off, and gets it.
