Returning to cinemas from 13 August 2016!
For a limited time only, National Theatre Live’s Encore Series brings a selection of award-winning British theatre productions to your local cinema.
Originally broadcast from London’s West End in 2015, the Young Vic’s ‘magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold’ production of Arthur Miller’s tragic masterpiece won a trio of 2014 Olivier Awards including Best Revival, Best Actor for Mark Strong (The Imitation Game; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and Best Director for Ivo van Hove.
The great Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale. In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.
