In reality, Governor Phips was only 41 at the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The film depicts him as obviously much older. See more »

Quotes

Thomas Putnam: You're frightening the children.
Ann Putnam: They should be frightened! An innocent woman died today, because of me! And you! A man died today because he opposed you. Opposing you is not a crime before God!
Thomas Putnam: Stop it! Stop it!
Ann Putnam: I will stop it! Even if it means I hang for it... I will stop this.

Loved it
20 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie came with perfect timing. My senior high school play was "The Crucible" and this movie gave me some great in-depth as to my character (Mrs. Ann Putnam). To think that all this actually did happen is both sad and crazy. In response to the previous comment, children may have been expected to be "seen not heard", however the truth remains that that movie is a fairly accurate representation of history.

Kirstie Alley was awesome, I loved how she portrayed her character, it made me both hate her and pity her. Kudos to the actors and directors, that is a heavy intense script and to have kept your performances strong throughout is amazing.
