Three sentence movie reviews: A Place in the Sun


Regular commenter Jan recently watched this and I was intrigued enough by her review to put it on hold.  What I found was an engrossing depiction of both class and a frank (especially for 1951) depiction of an accidental pregnancy. Expertly acted by all three leads, with special props going to Shelly Winters, who had the tough job of walking the line between trapped/insistent/annoying and sympathetic.*

  1. Haha, she looks like she’s going to cut a B on the poster! So glad that you enjoyed it. Plus one to the AFI Top 100 list for turning at least two people on to a stellar movie.

  2. My uncle Duane especially loved Shelly Winters. He would always talk about her role in the Poseidon Adventure. This movie is very intriguing.
