Alan Rickman steers a roller-coaster of sex, lies and revenge as director of David Greig’s swift, muscular adaptation of August Strindberg's 1888 psychodrama about an artist in a draining marriage. The battle of wills escalates into a sort of metaphysical meditation on romantic attachment, and Rickman’s actors—Tom Burke, Owen Teale and Anna Chancellor—ratchet up the tension until it reaches a fever pitch of tragic intensity.—David Cote
