Missing Info! but faithful to the Glaspell's play!
11 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It should be Trifles which is faithful to the Susan Glaspell one act play of the same name. It would have been nice to have the cast and crew names to note and compliment or criticize them there but I don't know their names or I would do the deed. Anyway, the short film is faithful to the one act play and it's superbly done. Susan Glaspell would be proud to see this film. The actresses do an admirable job in portraying the local townswomen and the actors do an adequate job in probing the case against an unhappy married woman who kills her husband but why. I won't spoil it. You just have to watch if possible. I was lucky because my college professor, Ellen Gruber Garvey, worked on the film with the director in the film crew but even she's not listed nor is the cast and crew which is a terrible shame because they deserve to be recognized.
