Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Don't waste your time 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. 04/30/2012
