The Tempest

The Tempest ★★★½

Some Stunning performances. Honsou, Mirren, and Whishaw give layered and outlandish performances that echo the spirit of Shakespeare. On Taymor’s end, the score is out there but fun, the landscape and island is wonderfully built, and Prospera is better as a woman. Otherwise the film lacks a certain unity and can suffer from whiplash from the three stories. The missing fifth act is also disappointing.
