While their husbands are away on business, two lonely L.A. housewives embark on an affair in this remarkable feature from Barbara Peeters (who went on to be one of the only female filmmakers from Roger Corman’s New World Pictures stable) and Jacques Deerson (who would go on to photograph Two-Lane Blacktop the following year). Bypassing sexploitation, this tender, richly realized drama is a crucial milestone in the portrayal of sapphic relationships onscreen.
