Hedda Gabler (2013)

Hedda Gabler is a nineteenth century play, a classic by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen and it has now been made into a movie by young and talented director Matthew John.

The protagonist of the play, Hedda, returns home from her honeymoon and experiences a dull life after marriage and the things that follow.

This is the first time that I am going to post an exclusive interview with the stars of Hedda Gabler, in a three-posts-series.

This is the directorial debut for Matthew John and he admits that it was a challenge to start with a classic. 

“I know it’s a big risk, and I know there will be many Ibsen purists who will criticise us heavily over this,” said Matthew John. “But I believe we’re only doing what Ibsen himself would have done had he been adapting the stage play into a film script.”

Personally, I am excitedly waiting to watch the movie, bad for me it is still not available in my country.
