A Woman Under the Influence (Classic Film Pick)

WOMAN UNDER INFL RR DIFF In his 1974 film, John Cassvetes’ wife Gena Rowlands plays Mabel, an alcohol addicted and psychologically challenged wife to Peter Falk’s construction foreman Nick. The couple’s dysfunctional household, complete with their three kids, serves as an emotional lightening rod for their families and for their working class neighbors. Gena Rowlands gives a fearless, career-defining tour de force performance that is a pinnacle of film-acting in an earth-shattering film unlike any other ever made. If you've never seen a Cassavetes film, this is a great one to start with. You will be changed.
