About Lady from the Sea

Lady from the Sea explores the imprisonment of women by their society, the nature of obsession, and the meaning of freedom through the story of Ellida, a young woman who grew up in a lighthouse. Ellida’s marriage to an older widowed doctor has confined her to a remote town on a fjord in northern Norway where she finds herself longing for the sea while being haunted by visions of her former lover, a sailor. She is confined geographically and psychologically in a stagnant state until her lover returns, and she must fight to make her own choice about her future.

Lady from the Sea uses theatrical haze.

Lady from the Sea, The (Fjelde, trans.) is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
