The Last Lear

http://www.indiabolbol.com/2008/09/bollywoods-last-lear-a-treat-for-shakespeare-lovers/ The chances I’ll ever see this Bollywood movie are about zero, but it looks pretty neat.  I love this line about Amitabh Bachchan, playing a reclusive stage actor who quotes Shakespeare with relish and is making his movie debut at an old age: “…in one scene, Bachnan chases a reporter out of his house for misspelling the name of Oberon, the king of the fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Sounds like my kinda guy.
