"Isabel's Choice is propelled along nicely by Miss Stapleton and an actor with the odd name of Peter Coyote. Coyote, who looks strikingly like a young Raymond Massey, plays Isabel's new boss, Wynn Thomas, and energizes the role with all the force, decisiveness and shrewdness that one would attribute to a hustling and fast-rising young business executive. This is a scintillating performance."  ...Philadelphia Inquirer
