This small-scale, putatively comic meditation on the anxieties and joys of the theatrical life says nothing fresh about the artistic process and manages to be coy and grating in doing so.

A palpable hit.

Excellent, hilarious bookend to Branagh's Hamlet. If you or someone you love is in theatre, you must watch.

A Midwinter's Tale" packs together so many characters and ideas that they crowd one another out, leaving enough room for plenty of chuckles but none for belly laughs.

One of Branagh's most charming works too little seen.

A nice viewing alternative to the usual Christmas pap, and goes well with a fireplace and a snowy December day.

Delivers a bittersweet portrait of the trials and surprising rewards that come with being part of a theatre company.

A seriously funny ensemble farce.

Although this is clearly a warmup for Branagh's full-length dramatic "Hamlet," at 100 minutes it's pleasant enough for whiling away a bleak midwinter night.

A wonderful celebration of the pure joy of acting. It is full of exuberant energy and literally bursts at the seams with happiness.
