A Woman Under the Influence (1974)

R 10/11/1974 (US) Drama 2h 35m

A powerful, emotional look at love, marriage, compromise and life. So much truth and honesty in one motion picture will leave you emotionally exhausted.


Mabel Longhetti, desperate and lonely, is married to a Los Angeles municipal construction worker, Nick. Increasingly unstable, especially in the company of others, she craves happiness, but her extremely volatile behavior convinces Nick that she poses a danger to their family and decides to commit her to an institution for six months. Alone with a trio of kids to raise on his own, he awaits her return, which holds more than a few surprises.
