Slow moving. A really bleak representation of being a mother and a wife. I wouldn't want her life for anything. Her "awakening" doesn't go anywhere. It was depressing watching a woman being basically a servant to her family, with no dreams of her own. Considering how self-effacing and timid she seems, (spoiler alert), it's quite a stretch that she would be willing to take a long train ride to the home of a man she doesn't know. She had to go to New York City to buy puzzles? She wasn't living in the boondocks. Don't they sell puzzles pretty much everywhere? All together, a puzzling movie, and difficult to follow the overall point. This movie made me so, so happy I'm not married.
