A movie of....DREAMY proportions

A reasonably faithful adaptation of Shakespeare's original play with a 19th century twist added for good fun. The movie itself is rather low budget in terms of costumes and special effects, but the acting is lovely and the scripting is exactly as our dear William wrote it. Please take the time to purchase this wonderful work of art!

I was reading the book

In my class we were reading this book and comparing this movie to the book. I had to see it! and i love it! this movie is very well done and very close to the play/book!! I recemend it! 100%!

Wonderful Movie!!

I had just seen this movie on VHS at a friend's house and was so thrilled to find this available on iTunes! Each actor involved gave a wonderful performance and it was especially enjoyable to see actors that I never would have dreamed in such roles, (Christian Bale as Demetrius and Kevin Kline as Bottom) play their roles to such a T. A must-have for any lover of Shakespeare!
