  • ""Torvald and Nora Helmer have been married for eight years and, on the surface at least, their marriage seems exceptionally happy; they have three children, a comfortable home and a healthy income. But when Kristine Linde, an old school friend of Nora's, a widow, penniless but independent-minded, arrives in town and calls on Nora, she gradually discovers that all is not as tranquil and well-ordered as it seems. From the pen of brilliant late 19th Century playwright, Henrik Ibsen, comes this timeless drama about the battle of the sexes. It is widely considered to be one of the first truly feminist works and is still performed and taught everywhere in the world"--Shockdvd.com.au."
