Description This plot description is chronological, although major parts of the film are told in flashback. In 1956, Joan Archer (Annie Starke) meets Joseph Castleman (Harry Lloyd), a handsome young married professor at a women-only college. Although already an accomplished (if unpublished) writer, Joan is awed by Joseph's force of personality and advice that "a writer must write". Joan meets a published alumni authoress (Elizabeth McGovern), whose cynical views on opportunities for female writers disheartens Joan. Two years later, Joseph has been fired for having an affair with Joan, his marriage is failing, and his first attempt at writing a novel turns out very poor. Joan, a secretary at a publishing house, observes how the all-male editors dismiss women writers. When Joan criticizes Joseph's work, he threatens to end his relationship with her (claiming she cannot love "a hack"). Joan agrees to fix Joseph's novel for him. The work, titled The Walnut, is published and becomes a bestseller. By 1960, Joseph and Joan are living in a large seaside home in Connecticut. Joan is hard at work writing a novel, to be published under Joseph's name, while Joseph supports her by cooking, cleaning, and caring for their first child, David. As Joseph and Joan converse, it is apparent that Joan's novel is a reflection of their life together, which bores Joan..

Theodore would have had his first wife, Florence, take her husband's car out on the road. When he returned he had a stroke, and Florence took over. She got married to Theodore's brother Thomas, and their family name was T.S.T. It was a fact that Florence had been the mistress of Thomas' wife, and Thomas married a woman named Anne, who was also married. It was also known that Florence was a doctor, but her husband Thomas was not aware of that. This movie was very entertaining, although it wasn't very memorable. There were a few humorous parts, but the characters were not very likable. They all had their own problems, and all seemed to be trying to get along. Theodore would have been the perfect character for this type of story, but he had no chemistry with anyone else in the film. All of the female characters were pretty ordinary. One of the things that made this film good was the scenery. I think the movie should have focused more on the scenery, as it looked pretty nice. There were a few scenes in the movie that were a little bit out of focus, but it was forgivable. I thought the acting in the film was good, and the movie did show some emotions. The best part of the movie was when Florence died, which was in her own bed. The funeral was actually really interesting. This movie was better than I expected, but it's not a very memorable film. I thought the story was a little weak, and the actors did not seem to be interested in it. I think this movie would have been better if the characters were more likable. Overall, I would give this movie a 7/10.
