The 1692 Salem witch trials are brought vividly to life in this compelling adaptation of Arthur Miller’s play, directed by Nicholas Hytner, which stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder. When a group of teenage girls is accused of witchcraft, they accuse various townspeople as having bewitched them. As hysteria mounts, blameless victims are torn from their homes, leading to a devastating climax.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This staid adaptation of The Crucible dutifully renders Arthur Miller's landmark play on the screen with handsome production design and sturdy performances, if not with the political anger and thematic depth that earned the drama its reputation.
The Crucible earned two Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Allen) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Miller), but it should have received many more, including one for Best Picture -- it's truly one of the great forgotten films of its era.
