Masterpiece. Every one should watch.

Tremendous acting done by actors and a very good cast assembling as well.

The tongue is mightier evil than the sword.

One of the classic theatrical dramas is from a modern playwright whose Broadway credits are the types of stories that creates legendary theatrical experiences. I've seen two stage versions of this brilliant play (only just over 60 years old) and every ounce deserving of classic status.

This is a story of the lusts that tear young women apart, so in love that they turn to the dark arts to get the man they want. Rumors of witchcraft spreads through the small village (where a ton of locales seem to congregate), and events which they do not understand they blame on the powers of the darkness and set out to destroy anyone and everyone who may have helped raise the level of evil. From gossip comes paranoia. From that comes injustice, and from that comes unjust executions while the young girls, as lead by the determined Winona Ryder, desperately try to keep each of the names clean, even at the expense of somebody else's life.

The seemingly quiet but vindictive Ryder has intense feelings for farmer Daniel Day Lewis, secretly flattered but determined to remain faithful to his wife (Joan Allen). Easy to blame is African servant girl Charlaine Woodard (treated with disrespect even though she's presumably a paid servant, not a slave. The tension explodes thanks to the malicious flapping of the tongue, even striking down Rebecca Nurse (Elizabeth Lawrence) whose reputation for compassion and good deeds is known way past the town. By the time this occurs, the girls are all twittering like attacking birds.

With a modern retelling but every inch in the era of the real Salem witch trials (1692), it is a reminder that early colonial America suffered from many of the same hypocrisies that caused the Europeans to flea to a new world in the first place. This is outstanding in practically every detail, an issue that still rings true today.

"I am no more a witch than you are a wizard."

I started watching the movie without even knowing that it was based on Arthur Miller's 1953 play, but it all seemed quite theatrical, in a good sense. Although Miller changed some facts in his play, all the people who are portrayed in it were real accusers, "witches", reverends and judges during the Salem Witch Trials... Sometimes I have to say that I found the direction was quite...boring in a way, but all in all it was a movie to remember. I really do wonder though why The Crucible is a movie that Daniel Day- Lewis and Winona Ryder is not remembered for since they both were captivating.
