With such talents as Patty Duke Astin, Lee Remick, Colleen Dewhurst, Tyne Daly, Mare Winningham and more in one single film, how can one go wrong?

This is an excellent story of Mira (Remick) as she experiences being a wife and mother from the 1950s, through the 70s. Outstanding performances all around. Astin and Dewhurst were both up for supporting Emmys. Just watch as Astin has her final scene, where she is telling Remick what it was like to be locked up in a nut house. Powerful stuff and acting does not get any better than this.

Remick, who was unjustly overlooked for a nomination, hasn't been better since Days of Wine and Roses. She carries the picture very well.

A Pre-Cagney & Lacy Tyne Daly also does some of her best work in this film.

Please ignore the comments by the first reviewer. This is NOT a man-hating movie! I am a man and was not one bit offended by anything in the story.

This is not available on video, so try to catch it next time it is on Lifetime!
