It is a story of a professor, her secret past, and her friendship with a young man (Joseph Bottoms), to whom she rents the upstairs of her house.
If you can accept the idea of Elizabeth Taylor as a professor, this is a good little story. It turns out she had a measure of fame in her past life, and it takes Joseph Bottoms' character to bring her out of her shell.
It was nice to see Taylor in a not-over-the top role, as an ordinary middle-aged woman, and the friendship she develops with a young student, as a remedy for her loneliness and isolation. 9/10
