"Claire Bloom's wise, witty and charming look at the art of Shakespearean acting, rich with excerpts from television productions and her famous films with Laurence Olivier, will provide lovers of the Bard and of acting in general with an unforgettable evening's entertainment. Engaging viewers in direct conversations as well as riveting solo readings, Bloom offers an absorbing introduction to the literature that has so captivated movie audiences in recent years, through heroines famous like Ophelia in "Hamlet" and obscure like Lady Constance in "King John". A lovely look at Bloom's career, plus sensible, clear introductions to the more extended excerpts, "'Shakespeare's Women' is a model of how to present high art to a broad audience without losing either the art or the audience." - The Hollywood Reporter
Great interviews and clips from classic films. Shakespeare is still the gold standard in writing.
