Albert Finney and Diane Keaton play married couple George and Faith Dunlap going through a bitter collapse of their marriage. George has had a secret illicit affair, which when revealed has him leaving to live with his lover (played by Karen Allen). The director, perhaps purposefully, does not really get into how the couple drifted apart. Really, the only thing we learn is that George has an acute anger management issue, but we do not know if this had anything whatsoever to do with the breakup. Finney and Keaton use every bit of their acting talent to display the gamut of emotions the two go through in the breakup. Both got Golden Globe nominations for best actors of the year for this film.
Recently watched this again after seeing it many years ago in the theaters. It still holds up. Happy to see it available through Hoopla.
Albert Finney plays a selfish, some times violent husband and father. Diane Keaton does little to protect her children. At the very least, he needed to have a restraining order filed. This is a depressing, sad story.
