A New Leaf

Directed by Elaine May
United States, 1971
Comedy, Romance


Examines the vapid life of a born to wealth New Yorker. After he spends all of what was left to him, his questing after more (without bothersome labor) changes him. The main agent of change is a phenomenally passive and unassuming Henrietta Lowell.
