This film is about another place in time. Women got married and had children right out of high school or college. Wife and Mother, that was the game! Whether you were brilliant and talented in your own right, house and hubby were supposed to come first and give you all the fulfillment you needed. Hubby's job? bring home the bacon and let your Stepford wife look after you and the kiddies. Anytime society dictates the roles people play, there will be rebellion. Frank and April are very much victims of an era and the suburban neighborhood mentality that gossips about anyone that doesn't "play their roles" convincingly. I think it was an awesome movie.
