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.

Looked at coldly, as a piece of entertainment, it clearly doesn't satisfy. But as a personal statement from writer-director Kenneth Branagh, the film still isn't good . . . but it's interesting.

Unfortunately, it's hard to admire and mock without seeming simultaneously a nerd and an ingrate.

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

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.

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

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