An Unmarried Woman is a 1978 American comedy-drama film written and directed by Paul Mazursky.
It tells the story of the wealthy New York wife Erica Benton (Jill Clayburgh) whose “perfect” life is shattered when her stockbroker husband Martin (Michael Murphy) leaves her for a younger woman. The film documents Erica's attempts at being single again, where she suffers with confusion, sadness, and rage. As her life progresses, she begins to bond with several friends and finds herself inspired and even feels happier by her renewed liberation. The story also touches on the overall sexual liberation of the 1970s. Erica eventually finds love with a rugged, yet sensitive British artist (Alan Bates).
The film was nominated for three Academy Awards. It co-stars Cliff Gorman, and Kelly Bishop. It was released on DVD January 10, 2006.
