In 1692 Massachusetts, independent-minded farmer Daniel Day-Lewis can’t imagine accusations and arrests of suspected witches will gain credence, until scorned Ryder ensures they do. 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. With Oscar nominee Joan Allen and BAFTA Award winner Paul Scofield.

A film by Nicholas Hytner
