Rating: 2.5/5 -- Quaint, old-fashioned, and overwrought. Full Review
[Wood is] well matched by McQueen and even better served by Mulligan's unsensational direction. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- Exemplifies the lacerating realism that cinema had just barely invented. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: 4/5 -- Not perfect, but touching and adult; with fine work from the two leads, this is one of Mulligan's better films. Full Review
Rating: B- -- Co-starring with the charismatic Steve McQueen, Natalie Wood received a second Oscar nomination for this well acted melodrama about pregnancy out of the wedlock Full Review
Underrated romantic drama, with rich NYC atmosphere and a trenchant look at sexual mores. Full Review
Classic Film and Television
Fortunately the film survives these shortcomings through its sheer breezy good nature and the animal magnetism of its two stars. Full Review
A tough and tender love story about a foot-loose musician and the Macy's salesgirl who is carrying his child. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actress--Natalie Wood, Best (Original) Story and Screenplay.
It is 1963, and a young woman becomes pregnant after a one-night stand with a musician at a summer resort. When she confronts him with the news, he, at first, cannot even remember the event. Disturbed by his response and aware that being an unwed mother might ruin her life, she decides she must get an abortion. But things have a strange way of working out sometimes, and she discovers that having the child might work out after all.
- Film debut for actor Tom Bosley.
- Title song "Love with the Proper Stranger" composed by Johnny Mercer and Elmer Bernstein, sung by Jack Jones.
