Audrey Rose (1977)
The practical father (John Beck) and emotional mother (Marsha Mason) aren't very original types, but they do well; even more so when they’re required to act without dialogue. One aspect of Audrey Rose’s character was totally believable but the other part of it less so. It was a challenging role to ask of a young girl (Susan Swift) in her début feature.
I was hoping for something a little more sinister than what was given, but at least it avoided the plunge into the pit of complete melodrama that it skims around the edge of more than once.
