It was just recently that I was speaking with Christine, a fellow Shakespearean, about Shakespeare movies. Coriolanus, Gnomeo, The Tempest. “Who am I kidding,” I told her, “It’s The Tempest. I may not have loved it but I’ll almost certainly get it on DVD when it comes out.”
Well, it’s coming out September 13. Will you be getting it? Apparently one of the extras is “Julie Taymor interviewing Russell Brand, as William Shakespeare.” Having now read that, I may break it into little pieces shortly after watching it. We shall see.
