Set in beautiful 16th century Venice, one of Shakespeare's finest plays is brought magically to life in this 'sumptuous production' which is guaranteed to capture your imagination from beginning to end.
There are so many ways to see a Shakespeare play seeing a film at home might be thought of as inferior. This is not. The cast are incredible, the sets and costumes (or lack of them quite frequently) are beautiful and the drama intense. By today's standards really not politically correct in fact incredibly racist. That aside a masterpiece. It has comedy, romance, intrigue and a climactic court room drama. Perfect.
