Recensies

Lumet interweaves vignettes crudely, yet through McCarthy’s sexual frankness and the actresses’ emotional honesty (especially Shirley Knight’s Polly, Joan Hackett’s Dottie, and Joanna Pettet’s Kay), The Group exposes the fakery of women’s pictures today.

Lumet does his usual tremendous job, whipping the plot along with fast cuts and college songs on the soundtrack, but can’t quite disguise the basic soapiness of the material. Half-buried themes are there, from fear of sex (two of the seven are essentially frigid) to the girls’ gradual alienation from the bien-pensant socialism of their college years (it kicks off in the 1930s)…

As a movie The Group has its moments, mainly when it is playing away from the considerable talent of Mary McCarthy as an interior decorator and desecrator. The author has a wicked flair for walking into your apartment and linking the tacky wallpaper to your talky politics… Unfortunately, the joke tends to be lost on the screen, where the settings are so given that not even Mary McCarthy can take them away.
