Ibsen's tragedy with flawless performances
13 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a "made-for-TV" production of the Ibsen play which contains the finest performances imaginable for these characters, especially Hedda. Janet Suzman is brilliant in this role. To watch her interpretation is to understand the play. Ian McKellan and the rest of the cast are also superb. The film quality is definitely TV video, but all other production values are very high, including scenery and costumes. The director's understanding of the script is flawless and he works with the actors to bring out their very best. The only copy I have seen of this belonged to a friend and was taken from an episode of Masterpiece Theatre (I think). I would love to own a legit copy in any format if I could find one!
