Summary
Katherine Hepburn, Paul Scofield, Lee Remick and Joseph Cotten form the core of the cast for this American Film Theatre production of Edward Albee's play, directed by Tony Richardson. Agnes (Hepburn), as domineering and sarcastic as her husband Tobias (Scofield) is equivocating and guarded, finds her empty Connecticut nest invaded. First, Claire, Agnes' alcoholic sister (Kate Reid), arrives to bitterly spar with her more stable sibling. Then, Agnes and Tobias' daughter Julia (Remick) returns home on the heels of yet another failed marriage. Friends Harry (Cotton) and Edna (Betsy Blair) arrive also. Harry and Edna's solace becomes Agnes and Tobias' undoing as two generations raised to need love, not to give it, and who use language to dissect truth and feeling, not to share it, turn first to each other - then against each other. DVD print contains the following special features: interview with Edward Albee; interview with cinematographer David Watkin; theatrical trailer; "Edward Albee and A DELICATE BALANCE", an essay by Michael Feingold; AFT Cinebill for production; stills gallery; AFT scrapboo; 1.85:1, enhanced for 16X9 TVs
