John Cassavetes is one of cinemas uncompromising, iconoclastic and visionary artists.
Cassavetes’ most commercially successful feature and a benchmark of American independent cinema, A Woman Under the Influence is a devastating drama starring Gena Rowlands as Mabel Longhetti, a mother of three whose blue collar husband Nick (Peter Falk) toils as a construction worker. Their simmering differences lead to a series of domestic dramas that eventually culminate in Mabel’s nervous breakdown and six-month stay in a psychiatric hospital. Once released, Mabel and Nick must confront their uncertain futures.
