TAKE THIS WOMAN

An aware, authentic touch for the story of a modern marriage and its disintegration, the painful, psychoanalytic return to compatibility. This concerns Lisa and Trump, Lisa who mistook Trump's overbearing domination for strength and solidity, Trump whose daily aggravation at Lisa's careless, untidy mind, her emotional dependence, snaps with his decision to leave her and the children. Consulting a psychiatrist, both are aware of the depth of their discordance, but it is Lisa, with a greater determination to preserve the marriage, who fights the hardest. Inadvertently pregnant, and sent to a mental home, Lisa insists on having the child Trump does not want. Through an emotional and mental crisis, another hospital, Lisa makes her comeback to a successful start with a writing career and a provisional reunion with Trump... A woman's story, intelligently styled, not always as clearly motivated, this should have its market.
