Pinky, a light skinned black woman, returns to her grandmother's house in the South after graduating from a Northern nursing school. Pinky tells her grandmother that she has been "passing" for white while at school in the North. In addition, Pinky has fallen in love with a young white doctor, Dr. Thomas Adams, who knows nothing about her black heritage. Pinky says that she will return to the North, but Granny Johnson convinces her to stay and treat an ailing white woman, Miss Em. Meanwhile, Dr. Canady, a black physician from another part of the state, visits Pinky and asks her to train some Negro students, but she declines. Pinky nurses Miss Em but is resentful because she seems to feel that she is doing the same thing her grandmother did. Pinky and Miss Em slowly develop a mutual respect for one another. Mrs. Em leaves Pinky her property when she dies, but relatives of the deceased woman contest the new will in court.

Ben F (nl) wrote: It is so downbeat and scenes are occasionally so overlong that it really tests your patience, but ultimately it is rewarding as a character study. The first act of the movie, as Philip Baker Hall shows John C. Reilly the ropes, is worth the price of admission alone. It's a film that might leave your mind, but in the moment is thoughtful and something you can theorize about. A true seed for PTA's future masterpieces.

Eric R (kr) wrote: John Water's Desperate Living is a trashy, sleazy fairy-tale about an insane housewife who kill's her husband and goes on the run with her 300 lb maid. They arrive in Mortville, a crappy town on the outskirts where fugitives and criminals of sort take shelter. They are ruled over by kinky Queen Carlotta, and her minions, leather-clad men-the type that would wear ass-chaps. Yea, so this is a John Water's film and if that means anything to you, then you know what to expect. This is a very lewd, often hysterical, film that is a lot of fun. There are ton's of great random moments and dialogue that kept me well entertained though I don't think the "social commentary" aspect of the film comes through as much as Waters was hoping. It clearly seems to be a commentary on the empowerment of woman, in some capacity, I just think it's a little too grim, though fun, to achieve it completely. Waters is an enigma for me; he's definitely a lot of fun and I enjoy almost everything of his I have seen, yet I always am left wishing the film had more to say. Still full of interesting, bizarre and unique ideas which is always appreciated.
