Movie Info

In this classic screen adaptation of Shakespeare's fantastical play, the royal wedding plans of Theseus, the duke of Athens (Ian Hunter) and Hippolyta overlap with the antics of forest fairies, led by Oberon and Titania, and a ragtag troupe of actors. Meanwhile, young lovers, including Lysander (Dick Powell) and Hermia (Olivia de Havilland), deceive each other in amusing ways, and magic adds a mischievous element to this enchanted romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream

  • Apr 27, 2019
    A Hollywood version of the bard's work first impresses one as a McDonald's version of a steak and lobster dinner might - not too tempting in the brain's imagining, but this feature drips with the magic of old European legends realized for the screen and properly translated. True, some performances are a touch jarring but, by and large, the spiritual animus of this production shines even through to today. Oberon's departure is a dream.

    I absolutely hate overtures, and this movie has a long one! At least it doesn't have an intermission, though. I like Shakespeare, but I've never really been a fan of this story, it's really incredibly too silly, and not even that funny. What I did like was the actors and the beautiful sets and costumes. The only actor I didn't like was Rooney, he was so annoying, I couldn't stand him. Overall, a so-so movie, if you are a fan of the story, you will find it more interesting than I did.

    The scenes with the village players are thoroughly enjoyable, particularly inthe last scene.
