The Designated Mourner

Movie Summary

Director:
David Hare
Released:
1997
Rating:
R
A unique and disturbing work, The Designated Mourner is the feature film version of the hugely successful play by Wallace Shawn which was first staged by David Hare at London?s Royal National Theatre with Mike Nichols (whose brilliant performance was the talk of the town) in the leading role of ?Jack.? The play has now been created anew for the screen by the same cast, writer, director and designer. Told almost entirely in direct address, the screenplay by Wallace Shawn is an astonishing tour-de-force, as enthralling as his earlier cult classic, My Dinner with André (written and performed with André Gregory). Directed by playwright/filmmaker David Hare, starring Miranda Richardson, David de Keyser and one of America?s most famous film directors, Mike Nichols, in his feature film acting debut, The Designated Mourner is a genuinely original, intimate, and compelling experience.
