Twelfth Night


Director: Trevor Nunn

Rating: PG-13

Set in the 18th century, this is a very British version of Shakespeare's romantic comedy. An excellent cast features Ben Kingsley, Helena Bonham Carter, and Nigel Hawthorne.

Twelfth Night: Or What You Will


Director: Tim Supple

Not rated

This youthful contemporary version of Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night, or What You Will, stays true to the Bard's original verse, but takes a decidedly modern approach to this classic story of love and mistaken identify. Features a multicultural cast, and an awesome soundtrack.
