Special features “A Master Builder”

(Documentary, unrated)

The artistic triumvirate of Jonathan Demme, Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn update Henrik Ibsen’s “The Master Builder,” a modern classic about a successful, egomaniacal architect who has spent a lifetime bullying his wife, employees and mistresses — who nonetheless wants to make peace with himself as his life approaches its final act. Working from his own translation of the Norwegian text, Shawn gives a tour-de-force performance as the cruel, yet guilt-ridden architect. Demme’s direction is based on the near-legendary production created for the stage by Gregory, developed over a 14-year period. Lisa Joyce plays a sensual mysterious young visitor who turns the house upside down, much to the consternation of Julie Hagerty, perfectly cast as Shawn’s neurasthenic, long-suffering wife.

This screening is part of Zinema 2’s Explorers Club series.
