About this item

This modern retelling of William Shakespeare's final masterpiece is an exciting, mystical, and magical fantasy with Academy Award(R)-winner Helen Mirren (best actress, "The Queen", 2006) leading a star-studded cast including Russell Brand ("Get Him To The Greek"), and Alfred Molina ("The Sorcerer's Apprentice"). Exiled to a magical island, the sorceress Prospera (Mirren) conjures up a storm that shipwrecks her enemies, and then unleashes her powers for revenge. Directed by the visionary Academy Award(R)-nominated Julie Taymor (best director, "Frida", 2002) - and complete with exclusive bonus features - "The Tempest", with its innovative twist, is a supernatural dramedy filled with Shakespearean villains, lovers, and fools that will leave you spellbound.

Audio Commentary, Featurettes, Language: English, Subtitled: English and Spanish.

"Mr. Trinculo": A nickname for his love of trinkets and sparkles... Russell Brand holds court for Julie Taymor and Alfred Molina as he riffs on the jester's path from the Mundane to royalty (by talent) in this raw rehearsal footage; "An Interview with Shakespeare": Julie Taymor interviews Russell Brand as William Shakespeare; "What's Past is Prologue: Making Julie Taymor's Radical New 'Tempest'"; "Annotated Shakespeare": An educational audio commentary.

Don't waste your time

Customer review by SirGawain

1.0 stars by SirGawain

This movie adaptation of The Tempest is incredibly dull, even for Shakespeare. And the special effects of Ariel are laughable and look like something from a low-budget, cheesy B-Movie. If you want a Shakespeare play that translates well to film, I would suggest Romeo and Juliet (1996) with Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes or A Midsummer Night's Dream (the 1999 version with Kevin Kline and Rupert Everett). Don't waste your time with this one. It's nearly two hours of my life that I'll never get back.
