Beckett on Film: Happy Days (2000)

Beckett on Film was a project aimed at making film versions of all nineteen of Samuel Beckett's stage plays. In Patricia Rozema's offering, Happy Days, a middle-aged woman (Rosaleen Linehan), half-buried in the earth, chatters away to a taciturn man (Richard Johnson), who lives in a hole behind her. Later, she is buried up to her neck, and the man does not seem to be about.
