Critics reviews

With slightly cheesy dialogue in places—"Would you mind very much being the wife of an unemployed psychiatrist?"—and a too-ready willingness to resort to unnecessary narration, this at first seems like it might be a slog, but it really picks up as it goes, and since injustice is such a hot-button theme . . . you have to keep watching, I find. And you get rewarded by a scene of Anne Francis arguing with a baby.
