This brilliant, unusual adaptation of the classic novel has a decidedly contemporary slant. Although set in Puritan times, it deals with issues which make it almost a feminist deconstruction of the novel even as it preserves the familiar story of Hester Prynne, Roger Chillingworth and Arthur Dimmesdale.
"Exhilarating and daringly original." - New York Law Journal
