Samuel Beckett Short Play Starring Alan Rickman and Kristin Scott Thomas

Beckett on Film: PLAY (Dir. Anthony Minghella, 2001) from CAJ on Vimeo.

Play is a component of the 2002 omnibus project Beckett on Film, which enlisted 19 prominent talents, including Michael Lindsay-Hogg, Atom Egoyan, Neil Jordan and Damien Hirst, to direct films of every one of his nineteen plays. Anthony Minghella, directs Play, which you can watch above.  A man (“M”), his wife (“W1”), and his mistress (“W2”), each trapped in an urn, are forced to speak about the details of their triangular relationship when the camera turns to them.
