After living with an overbearing mother her whole life, an unmarried 35-year-old teacher (Joanne Woodward) gets a chance at romance with a handsome suitor (James Olson) from the big city. Paul Newman made his debut behind the camera directing his wife (Woodward) to an Oscar-nominated performance in this insightful drama that also racked up nods for Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Estelle Parsons).
