The framework of H.G. Wells's classic story will be familiar to moviegoers, despite the embellishments in the two screen versions. An idealistic time-traveler discovers a future in which the peaceful Eloi are farmed like cattle to feed the underground-dwelling Morlocks. He returns to tell his tale--one more tragic than the film versions--to a disbelieving dinner party. Ralph Cosham captures the time-traveler's initial enthusiasm at discovering a seeming utopia, even while foreshadowing the horrors he will encounter later. He brings as much reflection as suspense to the hero's frantic battles with the Morlocks and his search for his stolen time machine. This production is a great chance to catch up on a classic tale.
