Mies Julie [Miss Julie]


A brilliant play that was wonderfully adapted to the South African context, using the apartheid to broach themes of social equality, power, self-identity, and even love.

Fearless performance by the two leads who deftly handled the emotional range and depth that was required of them, and the constant evolution of power between the characters. However, ultimately, this play still bore the mark of chauvinism and that was starkly unaddressed in a play that juggled bigotry and inequality.

Nonetheless, the play itself was written and directed beautifully with rich imageries, clever juxtaposition, and subtle yet inevitable foreshadowing.

Wonder how the movie will be like...
