Critic Reviews for The Tempest
The film-making is rough and ready - Tempest looks like a student film and often sounds like a promotional video for Ovalhouse - but the cast is sympathetic and it's a pleasure to see them making the play their own.
The kids energise it, but it's a choppy jumble of good intentions and half-realised ideas, too wind-tossed in its structure to function even as a useful teaching aid.
Largely incoherent in its hyperactive attempt to cut edge.
An absorbingly raw and insightful docudrama, which brings together 17 young actors to present a 21st century retelling of a heartbreakingly relevant Shakespearean classic ...
Choppy cuts muddy the narrative, but the faith in grassroots art's motivational value resonates clearly.
