Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Meh. I want to say that this is an affecting, well-acted drama about the dim prospects for well-educated women well into the middle of the 20th century, with certain sharp moments and pretty New England scenery, which is all true. But it's also overzealously liberal and reductive to type, with no use for its characters beyond the predictable lesson that each one exists solely to impart, and the main love story is a real yawner. These actresses can handle (and deserve) much better material.
