Interiors is a 1978 drama film written and directed by Woody Allen, his most serious film to date. Featured performers are Kristin Griffith, Mary Beth Hurt, Richard Jordan, Diane Keaton, E.G. Marshall, Geraldine Page, Maureen Stapleton and Sam Waterston.

Woody Allen wrote and directed the gloomy drama Interiors (1978), in the style of the late Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, one of Allen's major influences. Interiors is considered by critics as a significant breakthrough past Allen's "earlier, funnier comedies" (a line from 1980s Stardust Memories).

Critics have also noted the apparent borrowing of visual techniques used by other highly regarded European directors such as Michelangelo Antonioni, Federico Fellini and François Truffaut. In the 'European' style, the film is subdued and features a considerable amount of dialogue.


The film's story concerns three sisters (Griffith, Hurt, Keaton), their suicidal mother (Page), their father (Marshall), their father's new wife (Stapleton), and the men in their lives (Jordan and Waterston).
