I am behind on this blog and I have to write like five reviews after this. It is also 9:41 so I excuse the subtle crankiness that is probably going to radiate from these posts.
This is a great film that feels like a Hemingway novel. A couple goes off to Europe. The husband stays strictly American while the wife gets swept up in the world of glitz and playboys. This is one of those movies that stays pretty neutral (even though the wife makes the most mistakes) which reminded me of Kramer vs. Kramer.
The Book describes this film as a movie for adults. I agree; this film felt very mature and everything wasn't black and white. An interesting and obscure movie, but one that should be watched.
I love the thirties!!!
Mary Astor was going through a very public divorce during the filming of this movie. She said that she kept her head held high by embodying Edith.
Available on YouTube, though it looks quite shady.
