In this adaptation of the classic Henrik Ibsen play, Nora lives a seemingly comfortable life as the wife of bank manager Torvald. But her past comes back to haunt her; some years ago, when Torvald took sick and the couple needed money, she forged a bond in order to get a loan from disreputable lawyer Krogstad. When a desperate Krogstad shows up at the Helmers’, Nora’s dark secret threatens to unravel her marriage.

Excellent. Had heard of this play, but didn’t know anything about it. What can we take away after watching this? Anybody can love you when the sun is shining.
