Twelfth Night (1998)
Critic Consensus: Director Trevor Nunn makes some questionable choices, but his stellar cast -- which includes Helena Bonham-Carter, Ben Kingsley, and Nigel Hawthorne -- more than rises to the material.

Critic Reviews for Twelfth Night
A handsome, agreeably performed rendition that fails to ignite much laughter or any real emotion.
Only fitfully do the actors actually seem to become the characters they are playing.
Stage director Trevor Nunn hasn't exploited it in his film of the chaotic Bard farce, which delivers only fitfully on goodwill the play automatically beckons.
Audience Reviews for Twelfth Night
Light-hearted Shakespeare just as it should be. Pretty much perfectly cast with each actor hitting all the right notes. Still like with most Shakespeare it will never match up to its source material but at least it goes for a fair balance between the theatrical and the cinematic.
Okay passable Shakespeare like the type that you are usually forced to endure in a high school class but don't remember well beyond the exam on the subject.
Good cast but is just pretty blah and uninteresting.
