Ellen Burstyn's performance is one of the highlights of this understated character drama. "The King of Marvin Gardens" has much of what made the New Hollywood era so precious.
I enjoyed the film but am still uncertain about who would actually listen to a radio show like the one in the film. It kind of reminded me of Clint Eastwood’s ridiculous radio show in Play Misty for Me but even worse.
Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty and meet me tonight in Atlantic City
