Adaptation of the Shakespeare play, filmed during a stage performance: "This immersive and darkly poetic cinematic experience brings the play's iconic fairies, spells and hallucinatory lovers to life ... the feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but beating at the center of the film is an emotionally moving take on the deeper human aspects of Shakespeare's beloved tale"--Container.
