Michael Hoffman directs an all-star cast in this version of one of Shakespeare's most popular works, set in Italy in the 1890's. Duke Theseus (David Strathairn) is unhappy because his daughter Helena (Calista Flockhart), passionately in love with Lysander (Dominic West), refuses to marry her suitor Demetrius (Christian Bale). Helena's friend Hermia (Anna Friel) does love Demetrius, but her affection is unrequited. The quartet escape into the woods, with Helena and Lysander determined to elope. Meanwhile, the fairy king and queen Oberon (Rupert Everett) and Titania (Michelle Pfeiffer) are quarrelling, and their dispute entangles a group of amateur actors rehearsing their play.

  Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.   A stellar cast, headed by Michelle Pfeiffer and Kevin Kline, bring Shakespeare's most romantic comedy to life. 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. Also starring Calista Flockhart, Stanley Tucci and Rupert Everett.     Actors: Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Everett, Stanley Tucci, Calista Flockhart Directors: Michael Hoffman Writers: Michael Hoffman, William Shakespeare Producers: Michael Hoffman, Ann Wingate, Arnon Milchan, Leslie Urdang, Nigel Goldsack Format: PAL Language: English Subtitles: Dutch, French, Spanish Subtitles For The Hearing Impaired: German, English Region: Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe.
