Description
It's hard to settle down in post-WWII Britain when you've been a resistance fighter and lost the love of your life. Meryl Streep leads a stellar cast of British notables in this 1985 adaptation of the Tony-nominated play by David Hare. Tracey Ullman and John Gielgud were both nominated for BAFTA awards for their supporting roles as Streep's friend and boss, respectively.

"The role of Susan is custom-made for Streep and she turns in yet another tour de force.... Susan is genuinely a puzzlement.... You may not like her, but you will not forget her."—Kalamazoo Gazette

"It is a performance of great subtlety; it is hard to play an unbalanced, neurotic, self-destructive woman, and do it with such gentleness and charm.... When she returns to England after the war, Susan makes friends almost at once. One of them is Alice (Tracy Ullman), a round-faced, grinning imp who seems born to the role of best pal. Another is Raymond (Charles Dance), a foreign service officer who is at first fascinated by her free, bohemian life style, and then marries her and becomes her lifelong ennobler, putting up a wall of patience and almost saintly tolerance around her outbursts.... The performances in the movie supply one brilliant solo after another."—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
