A Doll's House is a 1973 adaptation of a play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. The film was directed by Patrick Garland and features a powerful cast of British actors including Claire Bloom, Anthony Hopkins, Ralph Richardson, Denholm Elliott, Edith Evans, and Anna Massey. The film chronicles the less than fortunate events which befall Nora Helmer - a middle class wife and mother of the late 19th century. Nora's unfavorable disposition begins when her husband Torvald (Anthony Hopkins) falls ill. She is suddenly forced to reassess her seemingly perfect life as the submissive wife of a successful man. In an effort to save her household from falling apart, she steals one of her father's checks and forges his signature - but this only worsens her situation as she is consequently blackmailed for her fraudulent actions. A Doll's House allows you to re-live a classic play you most likely read in high school.
