Film Suburbs & Beyond

Restored! Set adrift after her divorce, a young mother (writer/director Barbara Loden) from a rural mining town is pulled into a robbery scheme with a petty crook (Michael Higgins). A criminally overlooked gem of American independent cinema and a crucial installment in the 1970s “women's film” revival, Loden's intensely personal character study uses vérité aesthetics to portray a woman's isolation at the margins of society.

(NR) USA – 1 hr 42 min
1970 · d. Barbara Loden
