Movie: Goodbye Again.
This is such a good movie, folks. Like, really good. Goodbye Again (1961) stars Ingrid Bergman, Yves Montand, and Anthony Perkins. Like many films of this era it was based on a best selling novel. Bergman plays Paula, an uptight 40 year old interior decorator living in Paris who is involved with playboy Roger, played by Montand. She encounters the 20-something son of a wealthy American woman on a decorating job, and a love triangle follows, despite Paula's devotion to Roger. It is engaging and ahead of it's time due to the scandalous age difference in the romance- of course, it's derived from a French novel. Great acting, music, scenery and a compelling storyline. So good. If you're still hanging tight with our dear friend Netflix, then you can watch it on instant, otherwise you can buy it here.
