Based on a true story, Mrs. Soffel is set in Pittsburgh near the dawn of the 20th century. Peter Soffel (Edward Herrmann) is the warden of a top security prison, and his wife Kate (Diane Keaton) often comes by to read the Bible aloud to the inmates, despite her fragile health. While making her rounds, she makes the acquaintance of the Biddle Brothers, Ed (Mel Gibson) and Jack (Matthew Modine), who are sentenced to death for murder and robbery. Ed has become something of a celebrity thanks to his letter-writing campaign, in which he appeals in the letter-to-the-editor columns of the popular press to stay the execution of his brother and himself. His good looks, intelligence, and charm make a strong impression on Kate, whose marriage offers her little excitement. In time, Kate finds herself falling in love with Ed, and she discovers that she's unexpectedly receptive to his suggestion that she help him escape.
Kate Soffel (Diane Keaton) is married to a prison warden in Pittsburgh, and is the mother of their four children. While she finds herself attracted to prisoner Ed Biddle, she abandons her husband and children to help Ed and his brother Jack escape and accompanies them into the wintery wasteland. .

It offers complicated conflicts surrounding the attempt to re-exist the old famous theater. The ending, anyway, is quite French: uncovers the continuing life of the characters.

H C (jp) wrote: Not a typical Doris Day film. Set in London, Doris's character is terrorized by someone she can't see through the London fog. Rex Harrison plays her husband. A suspenseful old movie. It's pretty hard to find (only on VHS).
Clare O (jp) wrote: Fascinating black-and-white wartime propaganda film with some brilliant cinematography and some genuinely edgy and shocking moments. Perhaps because no English village has been invaded (except by tourists and yuppies...) since 1066, the violation seems all the more nightmarish. In some ways very much of its [war]time, in others terrifyingly universal.
