A Delicate Balance

1973 Rated PG 2hr 12m

Part of the American Film Theatre series, Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play gets the star treatment with Katharine Hepburn and Paul Scofield playing a long-married couple who'd rather be alone than entertain visitors. The first interloper is Hepburn's drunken sister (Kate Reid), followed by the couple's much-divorced daughter (Lee Remick). But the duo's limit is reached when friends (Joseph Cotten and Betsy Blair) show up unexpectedly.
