Diary of a Mad Housewife

1970, 104m, 35mm, U.S.

Carrie Snodgress is married to obliviously belittling New York lawyer Richard Benjamin. Though she finds temporary respite with lover Frank Langella, he turns out to be as emotionally sadistic as the man she’s married to. This blackly comic look at New York domestic crisis finds Frank Perry—and wife Eleanor, who penned the script—in top form.
