"A stark, stirring film drama of adultery, murder and revence!"
-Judith Crist, The New York Herald-Tribute.
From "one of the world's most talented filmmakers" (Los Angeles Times) comes this riveting, Oscar nominated retelling of Euripidie's searing classic. Written, produced and directed by Michael Cacoyannis (Stella, Zorba the Greek), and starring legendary Greek beauty Irene Papas (The Trojan Women), Electra is "majestic and awesome" (The New York Times)-"a truly poweful and visually impressive picture" (Boxoffice)
Desolation and despair reign supreme in the kingdom of Mycenae: The great Agamemmon has been brutally murdered; his son Orestes has fled to an unknown land; and his daughter Electra has been imprisoned within the very walls of the castle she once loved so well. All hope seems lost....until the sacred oracle speaks and replaces Elsctra's broken spirit with an unquenchable desire for justice and bloody vengeance!
Approx. Running Time: 1 hour and 53 min.
