Four decades after his play made an immediate and lasting impact with its ever-timely depiction of coerced testimony and shattered lives, Arthur Miller adapted it for Hytner to make a potent and faithful film version. In 1692 Massachusetts, independent-minded farmer Day-Lewis can’t imagine accusations and arrests of suspected witches will gain credence, until scorned Winona Ryder ensures they do. With Oscar nominee Joan Allen and BAFTA Award winner Paul Scofield.

A film by Nicholas Hytner
