Masterpiece
5 December 2014 | by nhoitingSee all my reviews

Yesterday evening I went to see this play as a movie and I'm not able to give it enough praise. The morning after I still can't stop thinking about the haunting story line and the brilliant acting. Especially Richard Armitage as John Proctor simply took my breath away. The pain and sorrow he felt was so very palpable. At first I was a little afraid that the length of the play might be a bit to much, but it turned out to be so extremely captivating, by the end I simply didn't want it to stop. The filming has also been done beautifully. I felt like I was actual standing between the characters.

If you're able to see one of the few screenings of this movie, please go. I can assure you, you won't feel sorry.
