A feminist parable (1978), directed entirely in choker close-ups by Claudia Weill. The surface realism doesn’t hide the contrivances, black-and-white morality, and absurdly easy choices built into the screenplay, which still ends up affirming the old canard that marriage and a career are mutually exclusive. With Melanie Mayron, as the woman who is Jewish and liberated, and Anita Skinner, who is a WASP and naturally not.
