From childhood, Alma has loved John Buchanan. Repressed by the pressure of a minister father and a mother who has never recovered from a nervous breakdown, she keeps these feelings bottled up. Her life becomes unbearable when John returns from medical school and takes up with the sultry Rosa, the daughter of the casino owner who is as open and willing as Alma is shy and repressed.

This movie is a little bit slow regarding plot development and we had a hard time finishing it. But instead of giving up, we gave it a chance. I can say, it has excellent acting especially from Geraldine Page, and it's worth a try just for that reason. If you are one of her fans, you should just watch it with some coffee in the morning, or as an afternoon matinee at home.

Geraldine Page gives a devastating performance in the role of the neurotic and frustrated Alma. There are a few clunky and dated details, but overall well worth watching.

If you liked this film version, you ought to check out Williams' revision called "Eccentricities of a Nightingale (a very young Frank Langella and Blythe Danner have the lead roles.)
