The Crucible (1996)
Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of John Proctor is the Villain.
17th-century Salem, Massachusetts - a group of teenage girls meets in the woods at midnight for a secret love-conjuring ceremony. But instead of love, Abigail Williams (Winona Ryder) wishes for the death of her former lover's (Daniel Day-Lewis) wife (Joan Allen). When the ceremony is witnessed by one of the town’s ministers, the girls are accused of witchcraft. Soon the entire village is consumed by hysteria, and innocent victims are put on trial, leading to a devastating climax!
Nicholas Hytner (The Madness of King George) directed this modern classic based on a play by the great Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman) and featuring an amazing cast that includes Paul Scofield, Bruce Davison, and Peter Vaughan. Received two Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Allen) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Miller).
