I came into this film on TCM at 6:15 AM one morning, about 1/4 into it so I missed the opening and establishing of the players backgrounds and motivations, and I did not 'get them' until the denouement. The motivations of the mother and father as well as the uncle as the doctor and his family, are the engine that drive the plot. However, the directors job, once he has a decent story, is to elicit emotion of varying kinds from the audience. If you want to look at and watch Liz Taylor in all her youthful glory and magnetism, this is one of the best. Ironically if forebodes her complete life as a great actress who has health problems all her life. This film took me up and down several times much to my amazement and has a great Hollywood, happy wrap up. (nothing wrong with feeling good especially at 6 A M). Yes, of course there are some problems but I watch films for the way they make me feel in the end, not specifically to be a critic, especially films of this genre and contrived time period. I loved it because it made me feel alive and real!!We all have felt these same emotions in our youth and this well done film allows us feel these once more.
