You’ll Like My Mother is a quietly intense thriller spotlighting excellent performances by Patty Duke and Rosemary Murphy. The film avoids explicit physical gore, instead stimulating intellectual and unseen menace.

The novel by Naomi A. Hintze has been adapted into a moody atmosphere script which carefully and logically piles puzzle and confusion on Duke, a pregnant widow who comes for a first-time visit to her mother-in-law (Murphy). The latter’s cold, gushing and blase attitude, compounded by a winter blizzard, a mentally-retarded girl played by Sian Barbara Allen, and the presence of Richard Thomas, cast as a deranged rape-murderer relative, add up to a situation which finds an audience rooting for Duke and her nursing infant.
