as "Maria Forst"
Middle-aged suburban husband Richard (John Marley) abruptly tells his wife, Maria (Lynn Carlin), that he wants a divorce. As Richard takes up with a younger woman (Gena Rowlands), Maria enjoys a night on the town with her friends and meets a younger man (Seymour Cassel). As the couple and those around them confront a seemingly futile search for what they've lost -- love, excitement, passion -- this classic American independent film explores themes of aging and alienation.
