Movie Info

Based on Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about a dysfunctional New England family, this should have been a better play than it is. Somewhat stilted and formal, it is the story of a family who live together on fantasies and illusions--a lifestyle which is severely compromised when uninvited guests arise and disrupt the precarious balance in which they live.

Laden with insight, wit and touches of poetry... a cast of masterful actors delivering peak performances

More surprising than the acerbic tone or the intense shouting matches though is the very touching sentiment that emerges whenever a quiet moment transpires.
