New England schoolteacher Rachel Cameron's life is small and safe. Too small and too safe for a warmhearted woman who wants to do something - anything - to keep from slipping into spinsterhood.Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward joined their stellar talents on this powerfully human movie, he debuting as a director and she giving one of her hallmark screen performances. Both won New York Film Critics and Golden Globe® awards for their work, and the film garnered four Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture. The Newmans teamed afterward on other masterful films (The Glass Menagerie, Mr. & Mrs. Bridge, Empire Falls). But for tenderness, insight and artistry, none surpasses Rachel, Rachel.
