This modern retelling of William Shakespeare's final masterpiece is an exciting, mystical, and magical fantasy with Academy Award winner Helen Mirren (Best Actress, The Queen, 2006) leading a star-studded cast including Russell Brand (Get Him To The Greek) and Alfred Molina (The Sorcerer's Apprentice). Exiled to a magical island, the sorceress Prospera (Mirren) conjures up a storm that shipwrecks her enemies, and then unleashes her powers for revenge. Directed by the visionary Julie Taymor, The Tempest, with its innovative twist, is a supernatural dramedy filled with Shakespearean villians, lovers and fools that will leave you spellbound.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Director Julie Taymor's gender-swapping of roles and some frenzied special effects can't quite disguise an otherwise stagey, uninspired take on Shakespeare's classic.
Flashy, uneven Shakespeare movie has some scary stuff.
