Rachel, Rachel is a 1968 drama that tells the story of a frustrated and lonely schoolteacher who makes varied attempts at coming out of her shell. Despite the fact that she has had success academically, her social ineptitude leaves 35-year old Rachel (Joanne Woodward) feeling hopeless when it comes to new adventures. Soon, her best friend, Calle (Estelle Parsons), invites Rachel to a religious revival meeting where she finds herself enamored with the young preacher. Still held back by her shyness, this moment however, serves as a kickstart for Rachel as she decides to open up and finds herself experimenting with a world of sexual trysts and the reality of possibly even being pregnant. In the end, as Rachel's repressions begin to melt away, she soon learns it could come at a price. This movie serves as the directorial debut of Paul Newman and Woodward, who plays the lead, is Newman's wife.
