Three sentence movie reviews: Slings & Arrows Season 1.

The advantage to reading/seeing a lot of Shakespeare is that suddenly things that used to go right over my head, are very funny because I’m more familiar with the whole Shakespeare “thing.”  So this show about a Canadian Shakespeare company is hilarious to watch.  It also is very moving and clever and this season deals with the play Hamlet with which most of us are familiar, so you too might want to search out this show.

Cost: free from library
Where watched:  at home with Matt

ps. for those of us who enjoyed Stories We Tell, Sarah Polley’s father is one of the actors in this show!

  1. Oh he doesn't just make an appearance, he's one half of a Statler and Waldorf-type old actors. He's also in the theme song which is funny and sticks in your head and can be seen here (somewhat, the picture is a bit darker than on TV)

  2. I've heard of this show before, as in I've heard the title. I had no idea that it was about a theater troupe! That's an interesting concept.
