Co Clare colleen Tushingham heads up to Dublin, where she shares digs with her best pal Redgrave, works in a grocer's, and falls for middle-aged writer Finch, whose wife and kids have long since left him. Unlike other British films of the time, cameraman Davis's assured debut, scripted by Edna O'Brien from her own novel, doesn't pile on the kitchen sink realism. It concentrates on the characters' fumbling emotional insecurities and the keenly observed background of emotional repression. Has worn well.
