Head Over Heels (1979)
Mediocre, sad, typically inward-looking 70's movie
(possible spoilers) They don't make movies like this anymore, and one viewing shows why. Very dated, alas, although this also makes it useful to watch to get a feel of the United States at the end of the 70's, where men still dominated their women partners, and women were too often weak and afraid and confused in their relationships as a result. So maybe this is a realistic portrayal, but it is hard to like any of the main characters, except for maybe Mary Beth Hurt's character, whose main sin is one of weakness and indecision.
It is a notable movie to see that time in America, as well as to see the appealing Mary Beth Hurt before The World According to Garp. Too many aspects of dating are skirted in this movie, and even with the modern movie's need for a happy ending, this sort of movie has been done much better since.
