  • Directed by James Ivory, MR. & MRS. BRIDGE stars Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward as Walter and India Bridge, a traditional couple living in Kansas City in the 1940s. The Bridges have three children: the strong-willed Ruth (Kyra Sedgwick); Douglas (Robert Sean Leonard), a carbon copy of his conservative father; and Caroline (Margaret Welsh), a college student and romantic. After years spent in a sheltered marriage, India is forced to reevaluate her long-standing values when her best friend, Grace (Blythe Danner), becomes disillusioned with their straitlaced social group. Simon Callow plays Dr. Alex Sauer, Walter's nemesis and a proponent of psychoanalysis. The movie is based on the novels of Evan Connell, skillfully rendering the author's perspective on deeply held American social mores and values.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[A] nuanced tragicomedy of manners....With Mr. And Mrs. Paul Newman giving performances so incandescent you'd think they'd had candle implants..."
    Film Comment

    "...Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, are on screen virtually all of the time, and they're always worth watching....They have the kind of lived-in rapport that can't be faked..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...Newman and Woodward deliver lovingly detailed and bruisingly true performances that not only command attention but richly reward it..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Touching and reassuring....Woodward flutters expertly between easily punctured confidence and fervent absurdity....Magnificently supported by Blythe Danner..."
