A Woman Under the Influence Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

John Cassavetes's long, free-form drama is best appreciated as a good showcase for Gena Rowlands, playing a woman whose sanity literally appears to be shattering as different aspects of her personality eclipse others at various times. Peter Falk plays her struggling, blue-collar husband, trying to understand the phenomenon and sometimes losing his patience. As with most of Cassavetes's works as a director, one can't help but find one's attention drifting in and out (especially at two and a half hours), but Rowland's performance is a key reason the film has been declared a "national treasure" by the Library of Congress.

Academy Awards

A Woman Under the Influence received Academy Awards nominations for for Actress (Gena Rowlands) and Directing (John Cassavetes).
