Lemmon and Remick shine in their best dramatic roles
A movie by and for adults (a refreshing change) 'Days' is one of the most realistic depictions of addiction ever recorded on celluloid. Lee Remick is heartbreaking as the country girl overwhelmed by the big city, who Lemmon cajoles into drinking with him when he gets home at night. Not wanting to let him loose on the bar scene, she gives in, and becomes more addicted than he. When she goes to a cheap motel with another man because Lemmon can no longer drink with her, then calls him to save her, I was in tears. When she pleads with him to let her back in the house with their daughter, having managed to stay sober for over a week, his choice is excruciating. Blake Edwards wasted his career with Pink Panther and Julie Andrews movies; for a brief time, he was one of Hollywood's best dramatic directorsWas this review helpful?
