    • Synopsis
    • Hedda is a remake of the Victorian Period Drama Classic written by Henrik Ibsen. Hedda Gabler is a classic of realism, nineteenth century play writing, considered one of the world’s greatest dramas. The character of Hedda is considered by many critics to be the "female Hamlet," portrayed as an idealistic heroine fighting society, a victim of circumstance, a prototypical feminist, or a manipulative villain. SYNOPSIS: Hedda (Rita Ramnani), beautiful daughter of the late General Gabler, returns from her honeymoon with scholar husband Jorgen (David R Butler) to confront the boredom and banality of married life. Although she has little more than amused contempt for her husband, she is pregnant by him and is revolted by the thought of carrying his child and the changes that motherhood will impose upon her future. When the re-appearance of an old flame of hers threatens both Jorgen's career prospects and her own amour propre, Hedda contrives to bring about Lovberg's destruction, but, in the process, also brings about her own.
