Part of Dare to Fail: Cassavetes at 90 and Weekend Classics.

Depressed and jaded after being dumped by her married boyfriend, aging beauty Minnie Moore (Gena Rowlands) wonders if she'll ever find love. After shaggy-haired parking lot attendant Seymour Moskowitz (Seymour Cassel) comes to her defense from an angry and rebuffed blind date, he falls hopelessly in love with her despite their myriad differences. Minnie reluctantly agrees to a date with Moskowitz, and slowly but surely, an unlikely romance blossoms between the two.

“The movie is sort of a fairy tale, Cassavetes says; it's dedicated to all the people who didn't marry the person they should have. It is a movie on the side of love….Gives us performances by Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel that are so beautiful you can hardly believe it.” —Roger Ebert (1972)

“It is committed to romantic optimism, to the possibility that love can win out against the odds—that it can endure as something pure and idiosyncratic, in a way that only Cassavetes could conceive.” —Jeremy Carr, Senses of Cinema
