Winsome (female) buddy movie which offers a roundly satisfying tragi-comic role to Kidder, but substantially less to its audience. The plot hinges on plain-looking Potts running away from her track-racer husband (Carradine) and shacking up with Kidder in downtown Toronto. One-time great hope of Canadian cinema, Shebib contents himself with schematic contrasts between the two women's approach to sex, and a sentimental excursion into an Italian immigrant community. Anyone homesick for Toronto might find compensations in the location photography; but if you ask more of a movie, this one is not answering.
