Genie Francis leads an outstanding cast in this wonderful film dealing with two women virtually being forced to rediscover their philosophies of love.
The story opens up when a woman disagrees with advice that another gives in her column. The two women meet and the story of their lives comes out and what stories to behold.
The writer gave up her child when during her pregnancy, her husband, who she thought was cheating on her, was killed in an auto accident. Finding her daughter years later, she discovers that the latter's adoptive parents have died and there is the problem of connecting with her. Further complications ensue when she finds love with a divorced sports columnist whose son has left school and wishes to pursue art school.
The woman who wrote her has quite a story of her own to tell. Coming from a political family, she married into another despite finding love with a fellow officer from her husband's naval team. When she finds out that she is pregnant, to avoid scandal, she weds her intended and brings up the child as his. This all occurred in 1966 and her husband was killed in a boating accident. Despite the fact that her lover's wife has also died, she hesitates in rekindling her relationship when the writer brings the two of them together.
The stories are wonderfully interwoven with fine performances by all concerned. This is certainly a tale for the romantics.
