Twelfth Night (1998)
Critic Consensus: Director Trevor Nunn makes some questionable choices, but his stellar cast -- which includes Helena Bonham-Carter, Ben Kingsley, and Nigel Hawthorne -- more than rises to the material.

Critic Reviews for Twelfth Night
A handsome, agreeably performed rendition that fails to ignite much laughter or any real emotion.
A comic meditation on desire, disguise and inherent bisexuality.
Only fitfully do the actors actually seem to become the characters they are playing.
Stage director Trevor Nunn hasn't exploited it in his film of the chaotic Bard farce, which delivers only fitfully on goodwill the play automatically beckons.
Audience Reviews for Twelfth Night
Twelfth Night is passable. While some of the performances are a bit silly, nothing about the film is terrible. Rather the problem is that the parts are not played with much harmony. However, Helena Bonham Carter's acting, as always, is delectable.
Okay passable Shakespeare like the type that you are usually forced to endure in a high school class but don't remember well beyond the exam on the subject.
Good cast but is just pretty blah and uninteresting.
