WHEN TOMORROW DIES

Canada, 1966 (MIFF 1967)

Director: Laurence Kent

The film concerns a young housewife and mother whose existence has become dull and empty as both her husband and children are too taken up with their own affairs to bother much about her. Feeling dejected, and alone, she goes back to studying in an attempt to brighten her life. At class she meets a man whose interest in her makes her begin to feel alive again . . .

This third feature film, by young director Larry Kent, was made on a shoe-string budget. Patricia Gage is expressive in the leading role of the film, noted for its visual appeal.
