The lovely Sarah Miles at her best, with good support (underplayed for once) from Cyril Cusack. Irish girl goes to almost-swinging London, marries rugger-bugger English doctor, finds life unbearable boring and runs home to get in touch with her land and her people, including the boyfriend she left behind.

Story told in non-linear time, ie chopping from Irish girlhood, penniless entrapment in big city, to return and denouement.
