Plot
A Delicate Balance is the 1973 film adaptation of Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Katharine Hepburn and Paul Scofield play an old married couple who much prefer to be alone. Each time someone visits them, their "delicate balance" is threatened. The first intruder is Hepburn's inebriated sister Kate Reid . The next is their much-divorced daughter Lee Remick . The limit is reached when well-meaning friends Joseph Cotten and Betsy Blair show up unexpectedly and threaten to stay forever. In keeping with the austerity of the other American Film Theatre presentations, director Tony Richardson eschews his usual camera pyrotechnics for A Delicate Balance . — Hal Erickson
