The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man in the Moon Marigolds (Blu-ray)


Directed by Paul Newman

- +

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Paul Zindel, Paul Newman's second film as director stars his wife Joanne Woodward (Three Faces of EveSybil) as an abusive, overbearing mother raising her two daughters (Nell Potts and Roberta Wallach) in an atmosphere of bitterness and hatred. 

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds is a powerful, searingly unsentimental and ultimately transformative drama, with a trio of towering performances from the three female leads at its core.
