Description: 

Mr. & Mrs. Bridge is a 1990 American dramatic film, based on the novel by Evan S. Connell. The film was directed by James Ivory, produced by Ismail Merchant and a screenplay by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. The film starred real life couple Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. The story follows the all-American family living in the Country Club District of Kansas City, Missouri, during the 1930s and 1940s. The Bridges come to grips with changing social mores and conventions of the time. Mr. Bridge (Paul Newman) is a lawyer who attempts to stem the tides of his children's rebellion against the conservative views he holds to. Mrs. Bridge (Joanne Woodward) works to maintain an innocent view of the world, while dealing with her husband's emotional distance and her children's eagerness to adapt to a modern world. Detailed in the left portion of this poster are the enlarged side views of Newman and Woodward. The couple are captured from the shoulders up, with their gaze directed to the right. Both are formally attired. Newman in a white fedora hat and light linen suit. Woodard with a white cloche hat, double strand of pearls and light garment. In the lower right a Colonial style house and the three children of the characters are depicted, starting left with Ruth Bridge (Kyra Sedgwick), Douglas Bridge (Robert Sean Leonard), and Carolyn Bridge (Margaret Welsh).
