NOW ON BLU-RAY!
Director Arthur Hiller (Love Story, Silver Streak),
working from screenwriter Edward Anhalt’s
(Becket) adaptation, transforms actor-playwright
Robert Shaw’s THE MAN IN THE GLASS
BOOTH into a film the Los Angeles Times dubbed,
“daring, outrageous, utterly provocative, endlessly
ambiguous and strikingly effective.”
Nearly a thousand miles away from their beloved
Moscow, Anton Chekhov’s THREE SISTERS live
in virtual exile. Olga (Jeanne Watts), a schoolmistress, attempts to support her siblings and the
home that is the sole legacy of their late army officer father. Masha (Joan Plowright) finds relief from
her empty marriage in an affair with a passionate
young colonel, played by Alan Bates.

Julie Taymore
MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
From award-winning director Julie Taymor
(The Lion King on Broadway, Frida) comes a
Shakespeare adaptation like none other, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. Rich with
Taymor’s trade-mark creativity, this immersive
and darkly poetic cinematic experience brings
the play’s iconic fairies, spells and hallucinatory
lovers to life. Filmed at her sold-out stage production the feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but at the center of the film
is an emotionally moving take on the deeper
human aspects of Shakespeare’s beloved tale.
USA. 145 min. Color. English.
