Harold Pinter pens this 'portrait of a bad marriage' drama based on the novel by Penelope Mortimer.
Despite her unwillingness to stop having children, Jo Armitage (Anne Bancroft), a thrice-married mother of several children by different fathers, is not exactly cut out for motherhood.
Inflicting her existing brood on her third husband, screenwriter Jake (Peter Finch), does little to cement their marriage, and Jake's serial infidelities eventually lead a depressed and isolated Jo to a complete breakdown.
