HOT SPELL (1958)
If you're used to Shirley Booth as the spunky maid from "Hazel" you're gonna be shocked when you see her here cause she turns in a heartbreaking performance. Her whole life since she was just a teenager she's dedicated to her husband and children, but now that they've outgrown her, she's lost. She never developed a personality of her own. Her family was her personality.
Lots and lots of screaming and arguing, blistering fast pace, excellent script with some brutal as fuck lines, award level acting by the entire cast, thought provoking story and an ending that actually caught me off guard. Highly recommended.
