One of Shakespeare's most beloved creations, A Midsummer Night's Dream is the frolicking tale of lovesick young aristocrats, energetic but inept rustics, and mischievous woodland spirits. This production is a fresh and stylish reinvention set in present day Hollywood, making great use of the locations.
It's a place where fantasy and reality collide - where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead. In the tradition of Baz Luhrmann's rapturous reimagining of Romeo + Juliet, this modern vision breathes new life into a classic tale.
Combined with a cast of established and emerging stars, as well as a pulsing original soundtrack, the film will appeal to ardent fans of the Bard as well as audiences discovering Shakespeare for the first time.
The attractive and engaging ensemble cast includes Rachael Leigh Cook, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, Avan Jogia, Fran Kranz, Saul Williams, Ted Levine, Mia Doi Todd, Charity Wakefield and Paz de la Huerta. Written and directed by Casey Wilder Mott in his debut.
