    • Synopsis
    • In 17th-century Salem, Hester Prynne must wear a scarlet ‘A’ because she is an adulteress, with a child out of wedlock. For seven years, she has refused to name the father. A vigorous older stranger arrives, recognized by Hester but unknown to others as her missing husband. He poses as Chillingworth, a doctor, watching Hester and searching out the identity of her lover. His eye soon rests on Dimmesdale, a young overwrought pastor.
      Adaptation of Nathanial Hawthorne’s classic 19th century novel.
