NotesB/W. 2nd Director Lynne Tillman The story of Frances Farmer as told also in 'Frances' and 'Will There Really Be A Morning' (see below). A much harsher film scrutinising the response in the US to mental health and political commitment. And a look at women who are both strong willed and independent. This film promises to produce an argumentative reaction.
