I've been telling myself that since the night I heard the child say it. I lie in bed night after night praying that it isn't true. But I know about it now. It's there. I don't know how, I don't know why. But I did love you! I do love you! I resented your plans to marry. Maybe because I wanted you. Maybe I've wanted you all these years. I couldn't call it by before, but maybe it's been there since I first knew you.
I must say that I prefer the first adaptation of Lilian Hellman's play - These Three - shot 25 years before by the same William Wyler. It wasn't about lesbianism then but about a love triangle. This one is alas already forgotten.
a timeless piece... great dramatic performances and a brave movie for its era. it captures a realistic attitude towards the prejudices against the controversial issue of homosexuality. also an outstanding adaptation of Hellman's play.
