This film is SO beautiful. Its very rare that something is able to capture the glamor and sophistication of the late 1950's or early 1960's - but also the glaze that everything hides behind. This film has a sexy cast that live and breath the era. But it also captures the reality behind the image they are all living. When housewives survived on liquor and pills - all the while showcasing the image of perfection. The comparison between the glamor on the outside and the reality on the inside. This coming of age story tells how different generations of the same family are dealing with growing up, falling in and out of love and surviving another day. The dynamics between the relationships based on what each person is going through. Shot in black and white, which adds to the realism of the time. Lakeshore Drive takes place in Chicago during its prime. The cast is fantastic and manage to keep you mesmerized. I'm not sure where you can find this film. Maybe they will post it online or make it available on DVD soon? I hope so as I would love to see it again.
