Eugene O’Neill’s autobiographical account of his turbulent family life is brought to the screen with an overpowering wealth of talent. Katharine Hepburn as the mother -lonely, ravaged by narcotics and frightened by a world with which she cannot cope. Ralph Richardson as the alcoholic father, a miser embittered by his expired career. Jason Robards as the tortured older brother, a failure to everyone including himself. And Dean Stockwell as the budding writer struggling with his craft… and a family that exists in name only.
