1969 Certificate: pg


Comedy drama starring Liza Minnelli as Mary Ann, or “Pookie", a kooky college student who forces herself on shy young undergraduate Jerry, played by Wendell Burton. As the young couple's relationship progresses, Jerry must choose whether to immerse himself in vulnerable Pookie's lonely world or explore his own path. A touching and charming adaptation of John Nichols' 1965 novel of the same name, Minnelli's polished performance earned her an Oscar nomination for best actress.
