An Inspector Calls

We recently watched the 2015 BBC’s presentation of An Inspector Calls, an adaptation of by J.B. Priestley’s play of the same name.

She enjoyed it more than I did; the twist at the end helped the preceding minutes make sense but that understanding wasn’t carried through to the end, meaning I found the conclusion unable to hit the high mark I felt the tale was going for.

There was a message, and the context of the upcoming World War, I get that – but the explanation at the end didn’t provide enough clarity to carry that message home.
