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.
