The Crucible (1996)

The Crucible is a 1996 American historical drama film directed by Nicholas Hytner and written by Arthur Miller, based on his 1953 play of the same title. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis as John Proctor, Winona Ryder as Abigail Williams, Paul Scofield as Judge Thomas Danforth, Joan Allen as Elizabeth Proctor, and Bruce Davison as Reverend Samuel Parris. Set in 1692 during the Salem witch trials, the film follows a group of teenage girls who, after getting caught performing a ritual in the woods, band together and falsely accuse several of the townspeople of witchcraft.

Some of my family members were accused, this film narrates on two of my family members John Proctor and My 9th great-aunt Elizabeth Proctor (neé Bassett), sister of my ancestor Sarah Bassett.

Please Note: The Crucible is based on a play that Miller wrote, even though it was based on real people and events it is semi-fictional.
