Of all Shakespeare's plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream is the most phantasmagorical, with fairies, spells and hallucinatory lovers. Julie Taymor turns out a production that's visually breathtaking, funny, sexy and darkly poetic. With cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Frida) and music by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, this immersive, inventive cinematic experience was filmed during Taymor's highly acclaimed inaugural stage production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but beating at the center of the film is an emotionally moving take on the deeper human aspects of this beloved tale.
