Alice Adams

A reflection on the Booth Tarkington novel and the Katherine Hepburn film.
One thing though must have been as obvious in 1922 as it is now: Mrs. Adams has no idea what is important in life, an ignorance that destroys her son and nearly destroys her daughter.

Mrs. Adams appears to have the same mentality as Mrs. Bennet in 'Pride and Prejudice'.
