Director John Cassavetes pioneered an improvisational, raw kind of film-making. Married couple Mabel and Nick get on well in the privacy of their own home, but tension appears when they're out in public. Nick's outgoing personality clashes with Mabel's more nervous and insecure nature. Mabel tries hard to be a good wife and mother - but has no idea who she really is underneath, and eventually cracks start to appear which result in her hospitalisation. This film examines the nature and dynamics of marriage and challenges us to look at our own ideas of what it means to be sane.
Drama about a marriage's brutal collapse from legendary indie filmmaker John Cassavetes, with his typical loose, improvised style.
