Synopsis / Plot
Based on the novel by John O'Hara, From the Terrace tells the tale of Alfred Eaton, a man whose marriage is crumbling from neglect as he climbs the ladder of success. From the Terrace stars Paul Newman as Alfred Eaton, a young and intensely driven executive trying to make his mark in New York's competitive business world. Complicating his rise is his failing marriage to Mary, his stunning and philandering wife. On the brink of enormous success, Alfred must make the decision to stay the course in a loveless marriage or sacrifice everything he's worked for to begin a life with his true love, Natalie.
