| As strange as, though better than, The Guilt of Janet Ames
I have been ill and unable to comment on movies for several months, but I couldn't pass this one by:

In many ways like a filmed play, this movie includes several scenes set against backdrops made to look like a child's (presumably he title character's) drawing.

He is the son of parents who are -- gasp! -- about to divorce. For its time, it may have been adventuresome but it seems quite melodramatic psychologically in that respect when viewed today.

Alexis Smith is the mother, to whom he seems so close as to presage romantic movies such as Murmur of the Heart and harsher ones like Spanking the Monkey. I like her and like the director but she seems to have been directed to stare blankly to show her distress and confusion.

It reminded me of The Guilt of Janet Ames in terms of the stagy dream sequences; ut it is considerably better than that hilarious mess.
