| The Fifties: Not Quite the Cleavers
Anyone who thinks of the 1950s as a plastic people sort of place must see this marvelous film. Cast as a documentary about a woman the first year after her divorce, it is really a travelogue through the underside the 1950s, the part the Beaver Cleavers didn't want to see. In a deeper sense, it touched on the universal sorrows of a person cast loose from her contact with people (something I understand well as I go through my own divorce). It shows graphically that there is nothing sadder than a human being cast out of her or his group. So it's a tale specific to the late 1950s, but simultaneously universal in its assessment of the human condition.
