The Tempest

The TempestThe Tempest (2010)
This is Shakespeare’s original play bolstered by bits taken from other of his works – and a female lead. Exiled to an island after her evil brother usurps her rightful position of ruler ship, Prospera uses magic to bring an appropriate marriage prospect to her maturing daughter.

This film presented Shakespeare’s story more intelligibly than any production I have seen heretofore. And it is an amazing work of art! I can hardly believe that the diverse landscapes filmed all came from a private island in the Hawaiian chain. Black barren beauty, desert, forest, bog and cliff! I have never seen anything like it. Amazing! Great attention was paid to bringing life to Shakespeare’s original lines and retaining drama throughout the movie.
