Directed and adapted by Kenneth Branagh. A distinguished cast (Brian Blessed, Kevin Kline, Bryce Dallas Howard, Janet McTeer, and Alfred Molina) presents Shakespeare’s bucolic comic romance set in the culture of feudal Japan. The players are still British in this 2006 production (they live in a secluded colony in Japan), but the setting allows for some colorful sets and costumes. This doesn’t make Shakespeare’s familiar device of female characters disguised as men any more plausible, but it is an enjoyable romp through the forest of Arden. Color. 127 minutes. HBO.

Quantities are limited.
