1974 / 92min / DCP
Berry’s poignant drama provided Carroll with one of her richest and most justly celebrated roles, giving a radiant performance as a single housekeeper in Harlem struggling to raise six children on her own who faces still further complications when she finds herself falling for the charms of a charismatic but commitment-phobic garbage collector (James Earl Jones). An empathetic and exquisitely performed film that touches on the grim realities of the welfare system and the impact of racial and gender equalities on the lives of everyday people, featuring stellar soundtrack contributions by Gladys Knight and Curtis Mayfield.
