He directed the 70s film An Unmarried Woman and others. I saw this movie when it came out in 1978. I was 12ish and my mother and I couldn't truly relate. Well 2 years later and wow did we get it. I could so relate to the daughter whose life went upended because of her truly selfish father who wanted to be free after 16 years deja vu. If you haven't seen this movie, watch it. article
