Young, attractive and vivacious, model Diana Scott is firmly decided to become rich and famous as well. To succeed, she does not hesitate to take bold steps. After a while, she literally strikes gold: she meets Robert Gold, a well-known TV journalist, who not only introduces her into new social and professional circles, but also abandons his family to live with her. Diana seems to have happily combined success and love. However, in those roaring sixties, others are ready to offer her even more money, fame, and, seemingly, fun than Robert can...

Fell in love with this movie
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie for the first time and I loved it. It won three academy awards for best actress, costume design, and screenplay. The performance by Julie Christie is Oscar worthy and the writing has such wit and subtlety to it you really become engaged with the actors and their lives. During each scene I was hanging on every word. I wish they made more films like this today. The story of a career driven woman trying to have a relationship at the same time while the sexual revolution of the 1960's is finally hitting England. This film also had a strong statement how women in this changing time try to maintain their identity as a woman while they are working in a man's world. Again, you don't see many films about the woman's point of view. The women in today's films are just pretty to look at and don't speak until their spoken to. The female revolution in film still hasn't happened but after watching this film it makes me want to start one myself.
