If you want to watch a movie, A Doll's House is for you. The movie is just about a word for word interpretation of Henrik Ibsen's play of the same name, only varying when it serves the movie to break up scenes. There are no liberties taken with the source, no Romeo + Juliet like shenanigans. The play takes place in 19th century Sweden and so does the movie. Costumes and settings are entirely as you would picture from reading the play. I wish they would have taken some risks with this film, but I suppose it's better to be safe and not bad than risky but awful. If you have read the play, then you know exactly what to expect from the movie. If you haven't, then you probably shouldn't expect from the movie. Mildly interesting and decently acted, A Doll's House sets no expectations from which it could fulfill. I started this film expecting a movie form of a play, and that is exactly what I received. No part really stood out to me, though Claire Bloom's performance was memorable. This could simply be because the rest of the movie was not. If you have an afternoon to kill, and you've already seen your entire Netflix queue, then I suppose I suggest this film. This movie is no must-see, but it's also not absolutely horrible (looking at you G.I. Joe: Retaliation). One thumb mildly raised, stream it from Netflix if you have nothing else to do. The only thing you have to lose is about 90 minutes, which will be spent in a sort of entertained state.
