Richard Thomas and Sharon (Cagney and Lacey) Gless co-star in this disappointing adaptation of Harold Brighouse's 1916 English play. Jack Warden is Hobson, a shoe-shop owner who refuses to let his daughters marry because he's too stingy to part with their dowries. The first-rate cast is hampered by an uneven screenplay, which is good at conveying Hobson's obnoxiousness but not so good at depicting rebellious young love.
