User Reviews

Compulsory Viewing

For acting students and for all theatre enthusiasts, this must surely be compulsory viewing. This version is a staged play and in no way should be judged as a movie. As a filmed play its pure theatrical magic.

Arthur Miller wrote some wonderful plays in his time and this is certainly amongst the best. This production is blessed with a cast of superb performers. It's pure joy watching consummate artists at their craft. James Whitemore and Michael Learned in particular are outstanding, as is a young Joan Allen.

A riveting and deeply emotional experience awaits.
