This was the movie Director Robert Mulligan had to do, and withdraw from Rich and Famous (1981), due to scheduling conflicts having caused by the latter's three month delay in starting principal photography. See more »

I think it's great that she's decided to face this place, start doing things again.
So do I. But why couldn't she start with something simple. Like needlepoint, or analysis.

I absolutely adored this movie! I thought the acting was first rate as was the script. Sally Field is adorable as a widow who's about to remarry. No one but James Caan could have pulled off the role of Jolly as he did. He's entertaining, light-hearted, and gets his point across in a rather different way. This movie is one of my all time favorites. I especially love the way Jolly helps Kay to get hold of her life and move on. Very entertaining! Worth the watch.
