The Price Movie Overview

Geoffrey Carr is a wealthy, key player in Britain's emerging computer industry, and newly married to Frances , a much younger woman, with wilful daughter Clare from a previous marriage. He'll do anything to make them happy, including stretching his finances to buy a Georgian estate in County Wicklow, where Frances grew up. Frank Crossan is an Irish Republican hitman on the run from British authorities. Seeking refuge with old girlfriend Kate, he creates a plan to kidnap a wealthy Brit for a ransom to fund a major arms deal. Their two worlds collide when Frances and Clare are brutally snatched away to a bleak hideaway and taken hostage. Geoffrey initially wants to cave in to the kidnapper's demands “ but nothing is simple when a personal crisis plays out against the forces of political intrigue, high finance and with the eyes of the media on them.

  • Review: Mike Nussbaum deals in furniture, and memories, in "The Price" at TimeLine Theatre If you've ever tried to sell the possessions of a loved one, you've doubtless encountered the popular game of reducing the seller's expectations.

  • Review: Brothers Joined by Fate and Furniture in ‘The Price’ Image From left, Danny DeVito, Mark Ruffalo and Tony Shalhoub in “The Price,” a revival of Arthur Miller’s play from 1968.

  • The Price premiered in 1968, about 20 years after Salesman, and while it's rewarding to witness a great playwright grappling with complicated issues concerning personal obligation and the income gap, this is a frustrating work which, despite its fine ingredients, feels half-baked.

  • While The Price doesn't rank in the top tier of his body of work, it makes still-trenchant observations on the way we use money and success to define ourselves, often at the expense of family obligation or personal integrity. The meaty 1968 play also takes a sharp analytical scalpel to the obsessive national categorization of winners and perceived failures, bringing psychological complexity to characters on both sides of that divide.

  • Howards End. Roger Ebert on James Ivory's "Howards End". Ballad of Narayama "The Ballad of Narayama" is a Japanese film of great beauty and elegant artifice, telling a story of startling cruelty.

  • Alan Mandell as Gregory Solomon in Arthur Miller's "The Price" at the Mark Taper Forum. (Lawrence K. Ho / Los Angeles Times) Arthur Miller's "The Price" is an old-fashioned play that takes a fair amount of time to get going, but when it does — midway through the second act — it explodes with the thunderous moral inquiry that has earned the author a place on the Mt. Rushmore of American playwriting.

  • The Price is a two act play that takes place in the same scene. Victor and Esther Franz are selling off furniture that once belonged to Victor's father. When his brother Walter shows up, the play takes a turn from talking about the monetary price, and the metaphorical one we pay for the ones we love.
