By Ingmar Bergman, adapted from Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House
Ibsen’s powerful masterpiece about one woman who discovers the crippling restrictions placed upon her, and upon all woman, by her culture, adapted by the one of the greatest film makers of the 20th century. This searing retelling pares the story down to the five people caught in the web of lies and misinformation, and as a result cuts to heart of this classic and deeply tragic play.
