Moon for the Misbegotten

Synopsis
A television version of Eugene O’Neill’s semi-autobiographical drama starring Jason Robards as a cynical, self-hating alcoholic actor - based on O’Neill’s elder brother, Jamie. Colleen Dewhurst plays the earthy, gruff daughter of an Irish tenant farmer with whom the failed actor spends a soul-baring night of guild-ridden confessions, tenderness and absolution.
