Groundbreaking! Tyson and Wyatt steal the show!
30 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cicely Tyson is one of the best actresses ever. In this staged drama, she plays Vickie Ives Gunther, former singer turned housewife and mother. Vickie doesn't cook or clean because she has a full-time housekeeper. She does nothing because she's tough and stubborn. She and her husband come from Harlem to the Riverdale section of the Bronx which is a very posh section of the city to this day much less in 1971. Jane Wyatt plays the role of veteran suburban housewife, Mary Robinson, perfectly on par with Cicely Tyson who you can't take your eyes off of because she's brilliant. Th two couples are as different as you can imagine. Wyatt and her husband are white while Tyson and her husband are black. They're selling their suburban home for $98,200 and the younger couple are interested in buying it. They come for the visit despite the misgivings on both sides. The acting is first rate and the writing is somewhat needs to come alive more. It's only an hour but it does pack punches.
