Moral Dilemmas, circa Vancouver, B.C., 1965
25 October 2005 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

I noticed that this interesting little period piece had garnered one star in my local TV guide, which I thought was bit unfair. This is not a film of any cult status, its production values are primitive, even for the mid 60's, its acting fair to middling at best. But it seems to have fallen directly in that fault line of the angst between 1950s suburban 'utopia' and what would come after in the cultural revolutions (and wars) of the late 60s and forward. It has a peculiarly 'Canadian' tint, mostly in the self deprecating and cynical breviary of the professor to whom the housewife, Gwen, becomes romantically attracted. It nicely develops the theme of the bored housewife, seeking emancipation while grittily trying to hold on to dreams and values of her youth. Viewers will see all kind of visual references to mid century architecture and ornaments, in all their mundane 'glory'. Their are few nice ones, though, in the Vancouver UBC Campus of that era, the TR2, Corvette Convertable. Gwen and her daughter, Elaine, look extremely attractive as well, in the rather cramped fashion of the time. As slice of modern history of a time and place, I found it intriguing.
