Marsha Mason packs a wallop in first star-making dramatic role
Actress Marsha Mason had only two film credits to her name when after much television work and an unforgettable Roxanne in the tv CYRANO DE BERGERAC, she gave an intense dramatic performance in CINDERELLA LIBERTY and won both audiences and stardom, as well as a Golden Globe Best Actress Award and an Oscar nomination. Her Maggie is all emotion, both tender and explosive. She runs the gamut and gives an exceptional performance. James Caan works well with her and balances Maggie's raw yet vital persona with his characterization of John Baggs, understated and calm. The twist in the story gives him not what he wants but what he needs and in that sense is true to life. An enjoyable adult drama that still holds up.
