Critics reviews

When it comes to the crunch, Nichols always opts for an old-fashioned psychological realism. He cannot bear to view his characters solely as types or figures; he is too enamoured of the superb work of his actors to ever give up those moments of emotional truth when the words dry up and the tears flow.
