The plot consists of scene after ponderous scene of dredged up recollections of crucial episodes in the unhappy lives of the assembled guests at a house in the South of France modeled on the villa of real-life lost generation hosts, Sara and Gerald Murphy. All are American expatriates, including hostess Ann Field..., who has been putting her own life on hold for three years to be with her ailing father Stephen... The memories, some in the form of role playing, are prompted by the suicide of a young boy and the climax brings the inevitable "redemption" of one of the suicidally inclined member of this house party. --www.curtainup.com
