A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

Directed by Michael Hoffman. Set (for some reason) in circa-1900 Tuscany, this lush 1999 version of Shakespeare’s comedy of mismatched lovers boasts beautiful sets and a stellar cast that includes Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Calista Flockhart, Stanley Tucci, and Rupert Everett. The fairy scenes are truly magical, the "hempen home-spuns" rehearsing "Pyramus and Thisbe" provide amusing physical comedy, and the lovers working out their matches manage to achieve a high degree of sensuality while retaining a PG-13 rating. Closed captioned. Color. 115 minutes. Fox Searchlight.
