Bujold plays Cassandra in this ambitious, all-star adaptation of Euripides’ bleakest play. Troy has fallen, and the slain King’s widow Hecuba (Katharine Hepburn) must attend to her troubled, clairvoyant daughter (Bujold) along with the arrival of grieving mother Andromache (Vanessa Redgrave), and one-time war trophy Helen (Irene Papas) who awaits her own death sentence. “Suggests a toga remake of The Women.” -Dave Kehr
