Gordon meets Florence and they share an interest in tennis. But Florence has a supremely-ambitious mother (she barely knows her own husband exists) who intends to push her ahead. Florence's tennis career rapidly advances, thanks to Mother's manipulation and a promotion-minded coach; building toward the inevitable conflict between the fulfillment of Mother's dreams...and daughter's. —Rod Crawford <email@example.com>
Lupino's perspective is fascinating
This movie turns its characters' souls inside-out, but never deviates from its pacing or its sports theme. Interesting performances punctuate an early 50's version of a woman trying to find her own way by eschew popular convention. The studio ending forced upon Lupino blunts some of the intended effect.
