The Crucible

Any thoughts on the 1996 movie version of this?  I read that the script was approved by Miller.  

I don’t love it, but prefer to watch plays after we read them.  Any other versions of the play I should check out?

Thanks!

Thanks!  I didn’t know about this version.  I may end up showing the more recent movie, but I’ll check this out.

Hadley:

I found the 1996 movie really intense, moving, even wrenching; I recommend it highly. — Daniel Day Lewis is amazing, and equally amazing is Joan Allen. It's also great to see Paul Scofield again (Man For All Seasons, anyone?), though I think this might have been his final role.

(By contrast, I found the George C. Scott version from the 1960s almost unwatchable.)

I’m just popping back in to say that we just watched the 1996 version and had a great, juicy conversation about it.  It was MUCH better than I remembered!  I hope my earlier post didn’t deter anyone from giving it a chance. I must have grown up quite a bit since I first saw it 😉.

Thanks for the help!
