A perfectly healthy housewife discovers that she can’t operate her legs anymore, drawing her husband and the doctor into a frightening examination of past and present feelings. Set in New York, right as the Nazi party is on the rise, these American Jewish people are forced by the paralysis to consider their relationship to the world and ultimately, themselves.
Miller is good at the kind of story that dredges up buried feelings. I like his way of taking a thing and turning it around to see the different sides of it.
In this story is good because, in a way, you pretty much know what’s coming, but at the same time, you are surprised by the way it comes through.
It makes me think, which I appreciate.
And the actors were very good. The tension and the drama were very satisfying.
