The Trojan Women
In the aftermath of the Trojan Wars, Queen Hecuba (Katharine Hepburn) takes stock of the defeated kingdom. Her son has been killed, and his widow, Andromache (Vanessa Redgrave), is left to raise their son, Astyanax (Alberto Sanz), alone. Hecuba's daughter, Cassandra (Geneviève Bujold), fears being enslaved by her Greek masters, while Helen of Troy (Irene Papas) risks being executed. Astyanax also becomes the focus of the Greeks' attention as the last male heir of the Trojan royal family.
