Storyline

The heroine is a rebellious only child of a stuffy Upper East side family who struggle s to assert her independence. She (and her wildly curly hair) bravely fights her overbearing mother's efforts to tame her, and proudly works in a small esoteric publishing house and has a leftist neighbor/ boyfriend and a wacky best friend. She resists her mother's efforts to set her up with a suitable young man, but eventually finds that she was wrong about him.

cute film, worth multiple viewings
10 July 2006 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with Debbie in GA. I'm not sure why I like this PBS play so much. I think I like the way it presents the idea of what we do because our parents expect us to, what we choose to do in spite of our parents, how sometimes we come full circle to find ourselves.

I also like that the actress had unruly curly hair. And that her mother made comments about it. I don't know if the play/book itself had this character trait, but as another person with unruly, curly hair, I liked that she still moved forward in her life. Even with or in spite of the scattered, indecisive, problematic behaviors we people with unruly curly hair are associated with. :)

I too have a worn out video copy of it from when it played way back when. I check here periodically to see if PBS or someone might decide to make a DVD of it. Or as Debbie requested, play it again so we can refresh our worn out copies!
