Elevator Pitch In 1950s New York, a society wife forms a relationship with a young female shop assistant, who aspires to become a photographer, but she finds that she must decide whether to terminate the liaison or lose custody of her young daughter.
Content A slow moving romance, with much attention to 1950s detail. Where do they get all the cars from? And yes there is some sex – all in the best possible taste!
A View I found it a bit slow, since nothing actually happened in the first hour except setting the scene. But there again others will have found this the best bit. Probably faultless in its way.
