    Synopsis


    Petulia
    Petulia is Richard Lester's ode to the Swinging Sixties: a time of psychedelic instability when neither those who were square, nor those who were hip, really had it right. George C. Scott is Archie Bollen, a divorced San Francisco doctor in the midst of "discovering himself." Julie Christie is Petulia Danner, a peculiar young beauty recently married into an established family. Archie's sterile apartment and detached, bemused manner exemplify his inability to emote. Petulia's forward nature and desperate tenderness betray her fear of her sullen, abusive, pretty-boy husband (Richard Chamberlain). The physician and the newlywed embark on a schizophrenic love affair amid Pepsi references, automated motels, roller derbies, and a cameo by Big Brother and the Holding Company -- but they never achieve the daring to truly change their lives. ~ Aubry Anne D'Arminio, Rovi

      An Odd Picture That Somehow Works Out

      Posted
      Jory

      A very unique film with an odd way of streaming itself along. The reason this film works is because it is so entirely different from anything you've ever seen that it's luring enough to make you laugh, think, and wonder what in the name of all that is holy is happening. Same director as A Hard Day's Night.
