Adapted directly from the play by Eugene O'Neill (considered the Nobel laureate's magnum opus), Long Day's Journey into Night is a four-act study of addiction and recrimination that the playwright claimed was written in tears and blood. Taking place over a single, fateful day in the summer of 1912, the Tyrone family (modelled after O'Neill's own) confront their bitter failings and long-held resentments. Patriarch James (Ralph Richardson) is a renowned stage actor who's never forgotten his squalid Irish childhood, and has forsaken artistic ambition for commercial... success. His wife Mary (Katharine Hepburn) has developed a morphine addiction, his eldest son Jamie (Jason Robards, Jr.) is a violent alcoholic and failed actor, and his youngest (and clearly favoured) son Edmund (Dean Stockwell) is a nervous young man in poor health. All of them have something painful to say, and their silence is even worse.
