Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Rita wants to be a figure of glamor, a wonder for all who see her, the toast of the town. If she could, she would be Marilyn Monroe. As it is, she's a fairly ordinary girl who has a boyfriend who spends a lot of his time looking after his sickly mother. It's not glamorous, but it's real. When she meets a famous photographer, a man who is much older than she is, she immediately sees that he could make things happen for her, and she latches onto him and largely abandons her old boyfriend. Before long, however, she discovers that she's not all that keen on the high life, and she occasionally seeks comfort in the younger man's arms.
