Plot Summary

When dominating interior designer Eve (Geraldine Page) and her husband, Arthur (E.G. Marshall), split after decades of marriage, it comes as a shock to their adult daughters -- tightly wound author Renata (Diane Keaton), struggling actress Joey (Mary Beth Hurt) and flighty Flyn (Kristin Griffith) -- as does Arthur's new romance with a vibrant artist (Maureen Stapleton). This was writer-director Woody Allen's first dramatic feature, and the first of his films in which he did not act.

    Time Out London

    The film has moments of humour, but they are integrated into a totally serious structure which isolates the family's countervailing tensions with a scalpel-like penetration. Only in a single character, the failed husband of one of the daughters, does the tone falter towards soap. Otherwise the approach is rock steady and, if the film's surface invites superficial comparisons with Bergman, its real roots lie in the very finest American art. show more

    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    Interiors becomes serious by intently observing complex adults as they fend and cope, blame and justify. Because it illuminates some of the ways we all act, it is serious but not depressing; when it's over, we may even find ourselves quietly cheered that Allen has seen so clearly how things can be. show more

    Much of what’s great about Interiors comes from Allen writing a piercing drama, straight from the heart; much of what’s bad about Interiors come from his arid feints at duplicating a master. show more
