Three sentence movie reviews–William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream


The fairies in this film were a bit too twee, and the title makes me laugh (did they think we would confuse it with the other guy’s Midsummer Night’s Dream?) I saw this in the theater, but was again reminded how Sam Rockwell (Sam Rockwell, of all people!) managed to steal an entire scene. Might I also observe that Calista Flockheart is unable to look anything but ridiculous in Edwardian garb?
