Forgotten Movies, RACHEL, RACHEL
Margaret Laurence, one of my favorite writers, penned the original novel, A JEST OF GOD. Paul Newman directed his wife as a lonely spinster schoolteacher in rural Canada. A sad story as are all of MLs books.This film boasts the formidable trio of Geraldine Fitzgerald, Estelle Parsons and Woodward, all who emote to beat the band. A bit overwrought but still, how often do we see films about women over 35?
