Beautiful and haunting
18 March 1999 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Under-rated beautifully realized version of a famous play - everything is just right and Karen Allen's work as the tragic Laura is deeply moving - one of the best screen performances never to have been nominated for an Academy Award.
