The Tempest, the last of William Shakespeare's great plays, was adapted for the screen for the first time by Derek Jarman in 1979. Shot on location at the ancient and ghostly Stoneleigh Abbey, "The Tempest" tells the story of Prospero the magician, who lives with his nubile daughter on an enchanted island and punishes his enemies when they are shipwrecked there. It's a study of sexual and political power in the guise of a fairy tale. Jarman presents Shakespeare's intricate comedy of magic and revenge in a form that is at once faithful to the spirit of the play and an original and dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood pastiche, high camp, and gothic horror. His film recalls the innocent homoeroticism of Pasolini's versions of classics, while its lush sense of d?cor and color is worthy of Minnelli. The film's master stroke is the finale, a wedding feast designed and choreographed as a full scale production number, with the veteran black comedy musical star Elisabeth Welch wafting her way through a chorus of hunky sailors as she belts out "Stormy Weather." It's one of the great scenes in British cinema.
Three Short Films by Derek Jarman: "A Journey to Avebury" (1971), "Garden of Luxor" (1972), and "Art of Mirrors" (1973), Text of the original theatrical press kit for "The Tempest".
