R.U.R. (2011)

There’s no information in the non-subscription IMDB, but there is an entry for a movie based on Rossum’s Universal Robots.


The original play was a talky social comedy mixed with a melodrama (complete with a “missing papers” plot twist), and the big action sequences happened off-stage (with characters either referring in passing to events that happened years ago, or characters looking through windows and describing what they saw). So I worry what “enhancements” might make their way into a big-budget production. (Sigh.)

If anybody knows more about this movie (faithful art-house reproduction of the original play? CGI-infested revisionary abomination?), I’d welcome the news.
