Movie Info

Blythe Danner and Frank Langella star in this made-for-television adaptation of Tennessee Williams' drama. Alma Winemiller (Danner) is a woman of the South -- educated, soft-spoken, somewhat shy, and possessing a thoroughly original turn of mind. For quite some time, Alma has been infatuated with the handsome doctor who lives next door (Langella), but she's been unable to catch his eye. When he invites Alma to spend the night with him at a hotel, she has no illusions about what he wants from the relationship, but her loneliness and her desire has grown strong enough that she can't bear to turn him down. The Eccentricities of a Nightingale was first shown on PBS in 1975.
