William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

by Michael Hoffman




The world of the film is Tuscany at the turn of the lastcentury. Necklines are high. Parents are rigid. Social convention dictates the fate of the young. Class distinction is a largepart of everyday life and to be an aristocrat still means something.

This is the setting for director Michael Hoffman's adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. Together with Rupert Everett, Calista Flockhart, Kevin Kline, Michelle Pleiffer, and Stanley Tucci, Hoffman stirs up a raucous mixture of love triangles, mischievous fairies, revelry, love potions, spells, dreams, weddings, a play, and finally, three happy couples heading off to their marriage beds. As Puck so aptly puts it:"What fools these mortals be!"

A Midsummer Night's Dream is a beautiful play about how foolish people in love are. Shakespeare adds the demension of a fairy tale by putting fairies and a magic flower in his play. I would recommend this to anyone likes happy endings and who likes to laugh.
