Michael de Guzman scripted this prettified TV-movie adaptation of John Steinbeck's gloomy 1961 novel The Winter of Our Discontent. Donald Sutherland stars as Ethan Hawkley, a solid citizen loved and respected by his family and by the citizens of his town. Ethan's loyalty and ethics will be tested to the snapping point by a huge bank loan, and by "other woman" Tuesday Weld. Hawkley eventually redeems himself, but it's a tight squeeze. Teri Garr costars in Winter of Our Discontent as Ethan's steadfast wife Mary.
