Housewife trying to cope with the "Is that all There is, Oh hell no" syndrome
Most say this film is out dated? Well perhaps it is due to history changing its self. It Depicts a unappreciated house wife whom has to explore the world of accomplishments and her inner thoughts from an active imagination and her fantasy, How many of us daydream of things we would love to do or say. This film is artistic and a very Streisand vehicle for the time. I love this film and watch it often. The underlying humor is classic, priceless and a captured moment of time , for that particular time frame. Some just didn't get it. Those whom did got more than a film but a look into the eyes of a happy but repressed woman that had hoped to achieve more in life than being JUST a wife and Mother. Not that this is bad , it is a gift for those that do it well and awards should be given. But for Margret. her, at times over active personality. needed more to fulfill her inner soul. She needed a break . she took one. Yet she returned to what was important. Family and Life.
