Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A 1950s-style drama about teenage angst and parental despair, starring Eli Wallach and Julie Harris as the married couple and Deborah Winters and Stephen McHattie as their teenage children. It's Winters who's the problem, indulging in drugs, getting close to overdosing and ending up in rehab. Wallach and Harris blame themselves, each other and society in general. The people next door, though, are Hal Holbrook and Cloris Leachman who offer neighbourly coffee and assurance, though their son turns out to be a drug dealer. JP Miller's script was originally produced as a TV play in 1968.
