A timely film for today's drug culture and the family it affects., 18 June 2006
Author: csydow-1 from United States

This movie has haunted me for more than 35 years! I remember how beautiful Jacquelline Bissett was in the beginning and how she, the character, changed over the years with the use of drugs. I can still see the final scene - this from a fan who can barely remember the movies I saw last week! In the drug culture of the 1970's, this would have been a potent film to use as a drug deterrent for teens and adults alike. Her changing appearance was amazing! The family didn't looks at things very realistically either. My kids were pretty young then, so I didn't realize just how much this lifestyle could and would affect my own family's lifestyle. I have looked for this movie on all the TV movie channels and on movie sources for years, in the hopes to see it again. This space is the first I have found that tells that it hasn't been made into a CD. No wonder I haven't found it. However, I still would welcome an opportunity to see it again. The performances were outstanding and so important, even today.
