Great adaptation

10/10

My Western literature teacher had us watch this movie for class, and I was quite impressed. The acting is excellent: Diana Rigg was a perfect Hedda and everyone else was great too. The set and camera-work work wonderfully for telling the story (the setting is crucial to "Hedda Gabler"-they allow the audience to be close up and personal with the characters. The costumes were also lovely-Rigg looks amazing in every scene. The only problem I can see is the Isben mentioned in his stage notes that George Tesman was supposed to be fair (as is Thea Elvsted)and Ejlert Løvborg was supposed to be dark (as is Hedda) to emphasize the difference between the two sets of characters. I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the play.
