The accidental death of the older son of an affluent family deeply strains the relationships among the bitter mother, the good-natured father, and the guilt-ridden younger son.
In the book, Conrad learns of Karen's suicide through an article in the newspaper; in the film version, he calls her home and actually hears the news from the girl's stricken parents.
Calvin "Cal" Jarrett:
Well, don't admire people too much. They'll disappoint you sometimes.
When Conrad lies down on his bed before calling Jeannine, there is a bulletin board behind his head, on the wall above the bed. The bulletin board is missing in all other bedroom scenes, both before and after this scene. Also, taking these scenes at face value, Conrad's bedroom is maybe 5 or 6 yards wide with windows on opposite walls. None of the front or back exterior shots of the house show a space that could include this room configuration.
