Yes it's Shakespeare, Will, but not quite as we know it. Helen Mirren ('who is here at the peak of her powers') plays Prospera, banished to the island to look after Miranda (Felicity Jones), contend with Caliban, then come to terms with the invading Milanese. The gender change of the lead role lends an entirely different weight to the parent-daughter relationship. The film as a whole is as visually quirky as Taymor's famous Titus debut, and watch out for Russell Brand doing some comic business.


open_quote A solidly entertaining movie, vibrant and colourful, with excellent performances from Mirren and Jones. close_quote Robert Beames, The Telegraph
