Not really.. If she did whatever she wanted, it would have turned out to have been a tragic future for her and no one would have supported her leaving her schooling to be with a middle-aged man. It's not until she realizes how valuable an education can really be, that she understands what's best for her, even if at first glance that wasn't exactly appealing to her.
You may think it's "fuckin' stupid" but I think it was a great 'coming of age' story during the 60's, you are entitled to your own opinion.
It wasn't at all realistic though... she quit school, ignored her family, acted like an entitled bitch, and NOTHING happened to her. She didn't realise an education was important, she got sooky cause she found out her man was married, THEN realised the error of her ways (when she failed to do what she wanted), and then everything went back to normal, no worries...
once she realised she was a retard there were no ramifications for her retardedness, she was praised by her family, let back into school, and passed with flying colours... seemed like a completely silly representation of the (in any other 60's-based film) fairly repressive family structure at the time.
