Bryan Forbes, The Stepford Wives, 1975.

This cult movie is a classic of seventies sci-fi. Joanna Eberhart arrives in the quaint little town of Stepford, Connecticut, with her family. It’s the perfect place to live and everyone is kind and generous — especially the wives in the community. Soon she discovers a sinister truth behind the all too-perfect behaviour of the female residents, their fears and prejudices.
