I wonder - is *stand in breasts* a job description or an activity?

I just finished watching this. While I don't think it is a cinematic masterpiece, it did represent the late 1970's very well. The acting was great, the NY background was great, wardrobe was great. Like 80'sRocked said, it was good at points, but slowed down in other parts. I prefer Jill Clayburgh to Diane Keaton. They were always compared in the 70's and early 80's. Diane Keaton's "routine" has been the same forever- act like a neurotic, flighty woman and flail the arms and hands around . She does it to this day. Jill Clayburgh seemed to be a bit more serious of an actress. Anyhoo, this was a good movie to watch if you want to see life in NY in the late 70's through the eyes of a still wealthy woman, her ex husband, her cute child and her zany friends. My favorite character was Erica's friend Elaine played by Kelly Bishop. I also liked Alan Bates as the new boyfriend.

I find so many of the then groundbreaking and topical subjects that feature heavily in films like this incredibly dated and hard to watch now. However, Hollywood filmmaking was never better than in the 70's and so many of these movies exude a kind of cinematic quality that is often missing from modern films. And yes, New York in the 70's was absolutely fantastic. A city crumbling from within but oozing character.

I agree about Keaton too, while I still like her she's always been Annie Hall. Then again Woody Allen has always been Woody - not that anyone ever pretended he was a great actor. I have a soft spot for Clayburgh - especially for Silver Streak.

Jill Clayburgh did some fine work in the 1970s. Her daughter, Lilly Rabe, who looks just like a younger version of Mom, is fantastic on American Horror story. She got Mom's acting ability too.

Crash, I watched the first 4 seasons of American Horror Story. I did not know, until earlier today , before even checking in here (I was checking out Jill Clayburgh's IMDb page) that Lily Rabe is Clayburgh's daughter! Every time I'd see her onscreen, I'd think "she looks so familiar, what have I seen her in before AHS?" Now it clicks! She looks like her Mother!
Logan, I am total agreement. I have been trying to catch some classic 70's flicks off and on over the past few years. Also early 80's, as I feel some movies still had the late 70's feel. I still have yet to see Only When I Laugh in its entirety. It was in TCM about 6 months ago, and I watched a little bit over my lunch hour, but they never aired it again!

Early 80's are also great. I am a Neil Simon junkie, and even though many of his films feel like plays (which they often are), and much of the dialogue is snappy 'sparring' - I still love them. Only When I Laugh is good (I think Mason got a nom for it?) as is Chapter Two.

This is a VHS copy download link. It's not great quality, but it's better than nothing:

I've seen "An Unmarried Woman" a couple of times over the years; the first time was in the 200X's - i.e., long after it came out. Excellent film, and a real time capsule of late '70's NYC. The city may as well have been another character in the film.

This film seems to be a fairly accurate depiction of the changing sexual mores & attitudes in the '70's (that started in the late '60's)....I.e., more couples were divorcing by that time & as such divorced people (especially women) didn't have the stigma that they did in previous decades.

The late Jill Clayburgh was truly gorgeous in the '70's - she also looked fantastic in the film "Silver Streak" (w/Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor, 1976).

For some reason, the final scene with JC walking down the crowded street past those two guys walking with the painting really sticks in my mind...

Over the years I always thought it would be cool to live in NYC at some point, but have never done so - the expense has a lot to do with this - going along with this, getting a good enough job to afford living there would be tough.
