The Lilac Chaser (2013)
1h 29min · Drama, Mystery · 1 January 2013
Melia and Ben are guided and misguided by thoughts of revenge, madness, and physical attraction after their father dies under suspicious circumstances. Both have to deal with their profound doubts about Peter, the heir to the family business who is fixated on securing a lucrative development deal that would destroy Morrowood Park. Ben and Melia soon experience the park itself as their greatest ally and as an agent for psychological and spiritual regeneration. Borrowing freely from the worlds of experimental theatre, music and contemporary performance, The Lilac Chaser deploys multiple storytelling strategies to create an edgy but emotionally intimate take on Hamlet.
