Did a male conspiracy send this film to extinction???
Tried to rent this movie EVERYWHERE!! Where is it? At the time, it was a signature piece - first (or second???) of a whole genre of films, including "An Unmarried Woman," "Starting Over," "Same Time Next Year," "Stepford Wives," "Fried Green Tomatoes," and others which offered a new point of view for the housewife emerging from the Sixties to the Seventies!!
Best scene - the plate flying across the kitchen during Thanksgiving dinner!
Tell me where to rent it!! Have they put it under wraps????
