NotesI doubt many will stay the course with this depressing film. About a young woman who is apparently unbalanced and her relationships with her family. The arty touches put the audience even more at a distance. This kind of material has been done better by Ken Loach and Mike Leigh. But Campion did go on to make "The Piano".
