An Unmarried Woman (dir. Paul Mazursky, 1978)

08-14 An Unmarried Woman

Set in Soho during its Bohemian early days as an art colony, this classic character study of a newly independent woman finding her feet in the modern world is a splendid look at a city and a neighborhood in transition, mirroring the transition in her life. Alan Bates gives the sexiest and most romantic performance of his career as an artist whose vivid paintings echo the colorful, explosive, vibrant lifestyles of the crowd in which he mingles, and into which the heroine (and, by extension, the audience) is invited.
