WHEN TWO PAIRS OF STAR-CROSSED LOVERS, A TROOP OF INEPT AMATEUR ACTORS, A FEUDING PAIR OF SUPERNATURAL SPRITES AND A LOVE POTION GONE AWRY ALL COME TOGETHER IN AN ENCHANTED MOONLIT FOREST, THE RESULT IS AN UNEQUALLED MIXTURE OF MERRIMENT AND MAGIC.

Calista Flockhart is delicious in her persuit of her man and with every disappointment utters and dispairing comic "Oh, spite."
Beautifully costumed with fantasic fantasy characters that were real to Elizabethan audiences, you can believe in these fairies too.
This is a film that will draw you into a world where Magic lives, where Romance is ignited by whim, and where Happy Endings may take a while, but are as certain as tomorrow's sunrise!
Certainly, Shakespeare's text has been edited heavily, and the settings have been changed, but one reason the Bard works so well cinematically is that his themes are universal, and timeless ('Richard III' has been filmed as a '30s Nazi-like drama, 'Hamlet' in a dozen time periods...Recent adaptations have placed 'Romeo and Juliet' in 90's California, and 'The Taming of the Shrew' and 'Othello' at suburban high schools!). This latest adaptation, while changing the locale and century, sacrifices none of Shakespeare's intent!
If you're a Dreamer, who still believes in Magic, and the power of Love, THIS is the film for you!
