Usually film adaptations of successful plays leave a lot to be desired, but THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES proves the exception. The performances of the three principal players -- a boyish Marty Sheen, a belligerent Jack Albertson and an oppressed Patricia Neal -- are flawless. The story is a young man returns home from war only to find that the family is actually the war zone. Beautiful ending pointing to the possibility of self-overcoming. Impossible to imagine Hollywood investing in a picture like this today.
