This PBS production is simply the best American TV adaptation of a play I've ever seen. I saw it in 1979 and have never forgotten it. The three leads are all so perfect together that I truly can't say who is better- Joan Hackett's dominating, seductive yet unreachable matriarch (in real life, the actress' tombstone reads simply 'Go Away', a perfect representation of her character in this film), stage actress Roberta Maxwell as the sad, combative daughter following in her emotional footsteps, or Bruce Davison's weak and frustrated son, yearning for love yet haunted by war. An incredible viewing experience I highly recommend
