Movie Info

British director Peter Hall's filmization of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, starring the Royal Shakespeare Company, is faithful to the text and to the main plot, which involves the "bewitching" of several groups of mortals by a covey of mischievous invisible fairies. The story was updated to the 19th century.

Critic Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream

  • Mr Hall's halfway house between screen and stage looks almost as uncomfortable a perch as the curious grave-like earthwork in which Judy Dench's Titania has her sleeping-quarters.

  • The ultimate in respectfully radical Shakespeare adaptations -- it presents the story in purely 1960s terms; respectful in that it includes nearly all of Shakespeare's text.

  • A dream cast makes this worth pursuing.

Audience Reviews for A Midsummer Night's Dream

    Rigg, Mirren and Dench are all fine, the extra half star is for them, Holm and Warner are okay but everyone else is stiff and lifeless and the film quality is terrible.

    I really enjoyed it. Creative yet faithful to the text. Very 1960s.
