A Top Flight Production - TV At Its Best - Drama At Its Best
20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christopher Plummer, Faye Dunaway, Bibi Anderson, all at the top of their game. A truly great production of a deep, complex, understated work of art, by one of the greatest, if not *the* greatest American playwright of the 20th century. Tackles head-on how our lives become entangled in the personal and political turmoil of our families, our selves, and others, all against the backdrop of terrible times and governmental moral bankruptcy. Miller shines a light to help show the way out. Amazing. A shame that this beautiful Gilbert Cates production has not received the acclaim it deserves. It really should be released on DVD. Now more than ever.
