OK, so on my search for versions of The Tempest to review for the site, I came across this…
It’s only a trailer for a version–an adaptation–from 1998, and I cannot find the full film, but … whoa … or wow. I’m not sure:
So. Yeah. It’s an adaptation–no real Shakespeare text from what I see. Peter Fonda as Prospero. Katherine Heigl as Miranda. The Mississippi bayous. The Civil War. Voodoo.
Words fail me. I mean, I’m intrigued. It could be good. But that trailer voice-over is just too much…
The post Friday Film Focus: a trailer for a 1998 version of The Tempest appeared first on The Bill / Shakespeare Project.
