A Doll's House (1973)
First screened in May 2013
Director: Joseph Losey. Cast: Jane Fonda, David Warner, Delphine Seyrig, Edward Fox, Trevor Howard, Anna Wing, Morten Floor, Tone Floor, Freda Krogh. Screenplay: David Mercer (based on the play by Henrik Ibsen).

Twitter Capsule: Five good actors who, unsurprisingly, don't quite mesh. Losey's camera isn't much help. Finale oddly fails to land.

VOR:   More interestingly glaciated than the Claire Bloom-Anthony Hopkins version of the same year, which makes for interesting cross-comparison. But neither quite endures.
