Love and passion, anger and heartbreak, laughter and happiness, all complex textures woven into the fabric so many have come to know as marriage. For behind the seemingly comfortable well-trimmed hedges of suburban Americana, live, and often love, Richard and Joan Maple.

Adapted from a series of stories appearing in The New Yorker Magazine over a period of twenty three years by Pulitzer Prize winning author John Updike (Witches of Eastwick, Rabbit Run), Too Far To Go garnered overwhelming critical praise in its theatrical debut. With its exceptional cast, this film envelops us in a poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes exasperating journey through this most important relationship.

"Flawless... brilliant... dazzling... hilarious... touching... perfect... superb.  The New York Times
"This is a production for which no award would be good enough.  The Washington Post

Editor's Note
Based on a series of short stories by John Updike, TOO FAR TO GO follows the joys and sorrows of a loving couple (Michael Moriarty and Blythe Danner) as they devolve from the romantic days of early marriage to the resentments and extramarital affairs which eventually lead to their divorce. This intelligent, made-for-television drama was such a critical success that it later received a theatrical release.
