Vanessa Redgrave, plays Agatha and Dustin Hoffman, plays the newspaper reporter who realizes there is much more to Agatha, than meets the eye. These two play off each other very well, creating a quite nice movie. Timothy Dalton, who portrays Agatha's husband, is almost too handsome and plays his role excellently. Agatha, after her car accident, disappears, for several days and the story, portrayed is quite intriguing. Vanessa Redgrave portrays her true broken heart, so well, over her husband's affair with his secretary. This is very well known, today, of course, but not back then, until later. My own heart ached for Dustin's character, however, because he helped Agatha to save herself with true love.
