The film documents the years between their graduation and the beginning of the World War in Europe, and shows, in a serialized style, their romances and marriages, their searches for careers or meaning in their lives, their highs and their lows.

First Candice Bergen, Joan Hackett, Joanna Pettet, Mary-Robin Redd and Kathleen Widdoes movie ! A look at American upper and middle-class urban society through the life of eight young women during the 1933-1940 period. Very interesting. Recommended.
Not among the very best of Lumet's work but quite close, a fine demonstration of his capability for vast melodrama. The dimensionality of the relationships is like a nice criss-cross of various colored strings of yarns being snipped away, one at a time...
