Editorial Reviews

This modern retelling of William Shakespeare's final masterpiece is an exciting, mystical and magical fantasy with Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren (Best Actress, The Queen, 2006) leading a star-studded cast including Russell Brand (Get Him To The Greek) and Alfred Molina (The Sorcerer's Apprentice). Exiled to a magical island, the sorceress Prospera (Mirren) conjures up a storm that shipwrecks her enemies, and then unleashes her powers for revenge. Directed by the visionary Academy Award®-nominated Julie Taymor (Best Director, Frida, 2002) - and complete with exclusive bonus features - The Tempest, with its innovative twist, is a supernatural dramedy filled with Shakespearean villains, lovers and fools that will leave you spellbound.


Special Features

• Mr. Trinculo - A nickname for his love of trinkets and sparkles...Russell Brand holds court for Julie Taymor & Alfred Molina as he riffs on the jester's path from the mundane to royalty (by talent) in this raw rehearsal footage.
• An Interview with Shakespeare - Julie Taymor interviews Russell Brand as William Shakespeare.
• What's Past is Prologue: Making Julie Taymor's Radical New Tempest: A look into acclaimed director Julie Taymor's radical re-imagination of Shakespeare's final masterpiece. This bonus will explore the stories behind the making of the film including: shooting where no film has ever shot before on Hawaii's remote island of Lanai; the revolutionary approach composer Elliot Goldenthal took with Shakespeare's most musical play; and the costume and design choices which have brought Shakespeare's LOST to life.
• Audio Commentary with Director Julie Taymor
• Annotated Shakespeare - An educational audio commentary with renowned Shakespeare experts Virginia Vaughan, Clark University English Professor and/or Jonathan Bate, University of Warwick Shakespeare & Renaissance Literature Professor.
