Come Back, Little Sheba

DANIEL MANN

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BBB.  

 wanders around her kitchen begging for our affection in this grimy little kitchen-sink drama. She won an Academy Award as a housewife who has to contend with the boring nature of her life while waiting for her beloved pet of the title to return home to her. Her husband () was once her dearest companion but is now an alcoholic with his sights set on the young, new tenant () of their building. At the time I’m sure her performance and the film itself seemed like great drama, but now it’s a bit cheesy.
