Forgotten Movies: MARNIE
The last time I saw this one, I thought it was a misfire, but I have changed my mind over the years. I think it is a good character study of a woman damaged by what goes on in her childhood and not allowed to recover. What a cruel mother evoked here. It might be too obvious by today's standards but it was probably a brave look at mental illness at the time.
Worth watching if it comes your way. Tippi Hedren is great and Sean Connery holds his own in a different sort of role than he usually plays.
