Dir Joss Whedon, USA, 2012, 107 mins
Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Fran Kranz
Avengers: Assemble and Buffy director Joss Whedon takes a break from super heroes and the supernatural to direct this modern retelling of Shakespeare’s witty and popular play.
Shot in less than a fortnight at Whedon’s California home, the director brings together a group of acting buddies to perform this contemporary take on a tale of triumphant love. Brilliantly acted and shot in a dreamy black and white, this is an accessible introduction to Shakespeare and a creative new approach for fans of the play.
“Joss Whedon’s impact on youth culture is already hard to overestimate. Now he’s made the first great contemporary Shakespeare since Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet.” – Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
