Tour De force performance by Ms Weld!
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has been years since I viewed this film but it had such an impact on me when it appeared in 1981. The story paralleled so close to a very similar personal/family situation. Yes, this last version was by far the best ever. Tuesday Weld seemed to "not be seen" for a while then she mysteriously appeared in this movie, wow! The fact that it was up to date made it even more real. I recall the scene where she meets Jerry Stiller's character in a very cheap, run-down apartment building. At this point Ms Weld's already in a boozed & drug-induced haze and practically fights for her bottle. The real drama sets in as Stiller's character tries to reach out to her but to no avail. In her drunken stupor she mumbles something about having a daughter & family, no one seems to believe her. I think she even over-doses in a scene. Be sure to take lots of tissue, this is a major tear jerker! A must see and still holds up quite well to this day! I am certain Tuesday Weld received an award and critical acclaim for this role and deservedly so. Get the DVD if it exists!
