Starring Carrie Snodgress & Ray Milland (1980)
Once we get to know her, there is no way we can blame Louise for taking a little nip now and then. A bit of whiskey helps her get through the day, be it at the library, at lunch with dear Emily, or perhaps on a night out at the movies after she meets a sailor named Richard. After rebelliously leaving dear old dad at home, Louise heads out to the movies on her own. No sooner does she settle down for a spooky teen slasher flick, then the studly sailor Richard shows up and comes on to her. In no time at all, they are back at his hotel! Louise is shy, nervous and delusional - in the heat of the moment, we uncomfortably gaze on the two of them like voyeurs, while Louise believes that she is making love to her dear, long lost Robert.
