Oscar® winner Shirley MacLaine is nothing short of brilliant in this gripping drama by acclaimed writer/director Frank D. Gilroy (The Subject Was Roses). With wit and real wisdom, Desperate Characters brilliantly examines the life of two disillusioned New Yorkers as they struggle to come to grips with the "normal" life with which they can no longer cope. Featuring powerful performances by MacLaine, Kenneth Mars (The Producers) as her disenchanted husband, and a young Carol Kane (The Princess Bride).
