Alternately wispy, melancholy, and powerfully introspective...
11 July 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

19-year-old American girl from Chicago, studying art in Paris and beginning to show real promise, abandons her talent for an unfulfilled modeling career and a series of romantic misfires; four years later, she's contemplating her future, fed up with the empty decadence, disappointment, and heartache of her life. Irwin Shaw based his screenplay on two of his short stories, and he just about nails the insecure feelings of a directionless young woman desperate to hang on to youth and beauty while seeking loftier paths in the bargain. The film is slowly paced, but it isn't dreary nor insubstantial, and it sneaks up on you. Jean Seberg is tentative in the starring role, but also thoughtful and complicated. It's a 'beautiful people' movie, most likely aimed at upscale feminine audiences of the time, yet it has a lot more resonance (and cool style) than most other "woman's pictures" of the era. *** from ****
