Set in the present day New York City, The Private Life of a Modern Woman focuses on Vera, considered the best actress in the world, and her struggle keeping up appearances and personal life responsibilities. She turns down a starring role in an upcoming project from the hottest new director in Hollywood because she does not think she could realistically kill someone on screen. Vera's coke-addled ex-boyfriend then comes over and Vera does that thing she said she couldn't do.

Critic Reviews for The Private Life of a Modern Woman

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The Private Life of a Modern Woman shrewdly investigates how an accidental incident upends the equilibrium of a young woman who seems to have everything going for her.

"The Private Life of a Modern Woman" is a thrift-shop psychological X-ray that demands to be taken on its own Tobackian terms. But even on those terms, it spends too much time telling us things that it should be showing us.

Just 71 minutes long, but so toenail-tweakingly pleased with itself, and so replete with pseud-ish posturing, that by the end it feels as if the whole thing must have been playing at quarter-speed.

This won't raise Toback's ever-wavering profile, but at least it proves him game for a challenge and unashamed to look, let's say, studenty in his earnestness - which feels somehow commendable for a director of his vintage.

The Private Life of a Modern Woman is written and directed by James Toback, a once-talented iconoclast now largely fighting shadows.
