I don't need you, Ricky, because someone has just shown me that he cares enough about me to make me care about myself. I've got me and me can take me wherever me wants to go!

What a good movie!!! Made to perfection. That Joanne Woodward never fails to amaze me! She is quite simply the greatest actress ever to set foot on stage or grace the screen. and I mean that. She is mind-blowing in every movie she does, this one is no exception. Her portayed of Lila Green is nothing short of genius. The rest of the cast is great too...though, like someone before me said, none of them are likable characters except Lila. Well, except for little Sandra. She's likeable.
I recommend this movie to anyone! If for nothing else, see this movie for a stunning performance by Joanne Woodward.
