Joanne Woodward shines in lacklustre film drama.
11 November 1999 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Franklin Schaffner's first directorial effort is an adaptation of William Inge's play, A LOSS OF ROSES. As Lila Green, a childlike and effusive second rate performer, Joanne Woodward gives a superb performance. She is surrounded by a cast of highly abusive characters, both men and women, who nearly destroy her and her dreams. She does however gain self-respect by the end of the film, enough to walk out on all of them. This is a film for Woodward fans and for students of acting. Since she is the ONLY character who is likeable, the film suffers badly from Inge's writing. Everyone else in the cast including Beymer and a strangely cast Gypsy Rose Lee are merely adequate. Oddly Oscar nommed for Costume Design - what costumes? Did you see a costume? True, Lila has a few flashy outfits and a bubble surround for her last turn as a stripper, but really!!!!
