Summary
"On a desolate American farm in the early 1900's, a farmer is found murdered in his sleep and his wife is jailed as the prime suspect. This feminist film classic, a powerful adaptation of the 1917 Susan Glaspell short story, presents a riveting tale of revenge, justice and women's shared experience. Probing the notion of women's victimization and justifiable homicide, this film opens the possibility for the creation of an alternate, feminist justice and judgment." back cover of the case
