This is an amazing and powerful rendering of one of the greatest 20th century American plays. I am shocked at the shallow review that mentions the "misguided morals" of the characters. That misses the point entirely. The play and movie offer important questions about the materialistic values of our society. What does success mean to most people? what should it mean? If this family is devoid of moral values, what is the root of that? What is the meaning of Willy's struggle? Linda's fidelity despite Willy's failure? Biff and Hp's failure to take responsibility for themselves? This film offers great fodder for a thinking family's thoughtful discussion--especially as teens strive to make important decisions about their futures. What does success mean to ME? What do I need to do to be successful? What happens if my dreams don't come true exactly as I had planned?
