Writer/director Brooks’ wrenching adaptation of Judith Rossner’s novel—inspired by a haunting real-life incident—earned Oscar nominations for supporting actress Tuesday Weld and for cinematographer William A. Fraker. Diane Keaton devastates in her portrayal of a devoted schoolteacher whose mounting romantic and familial dysfunction leads to a tragic downward spiral through singles-bar-scene encounters with, among others, petty criminal Richard Gere.
