Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (US, 1974)

I remember this being a key film for feminists in the ’70s. It’s a bit of a period piece now, focusing on how a dependent woman struggles to become independent but is no less interesting for that. Peculiar ultra-melodramatic mise en scene for the opening which is followed by realist camera work throughout. Bursten is great, as usual. (OAR, 2). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071115/
