About this item

From Michael Radford, the Academy Award(R)-nominated director of "Il Postino," comes the critically-acclaimed screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's controversial classic, "The Merchant Of Venice." Antonio (Jeremy Irons), a successful but cash-poor merchant, approaches Shylock (Al Pacino), a wealthy moneylender, for a loan to help his young friend Bassanio (Joseph Fiennes, "Shakespeare In Love") woo the fair Portia (Lynn Collins, "13 Going On 30"). Despite being longtime enemies, Shylock grants the request, but demands one pound of Antonio's flesh if the debt is not repaid on time. When Antonio defaults on the loan, Shylock seeks what is legally owed to him but soon learns that those to whom evil is done, do evil in return.

Although this version is not always as true to the original language of the play (as say the BBC version) and leaves some things out, it does do a great job of hitting the major points in a more modern fashion and can help those studens who are struggling to visualize what is going on while reading. My daughter read the play, then we watched the BBC version, then this version. What major scences are presented here are presented very well (the actors do a wonderfu job t deliviering their lines with the right emphasis). It sure helped her to understand far better what Shakespeare was trying to say.
