Desire Under the Elms

Surprisingly faithful to the play, but still a leaden travesty. Director and cast (Loren especially) are hopelessly at sea with Eugene O'Neill's tragedy of familial lust (for land as much as for the body), which is a loose transposition to 19th century New England of Euripides' Hippolytus.
