I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), yesterday
Synopsis: a woman disguised as a boy is part of an unrequited-love-triangle
Acting: Some is bad, and none is exceptional, but it’s good on average.
Subjective Rating: 4/10 (Eh, ) Poorly directed, and the play isn’t that great to start with. Ben Kingsley makes a valiant attempt to do something interesting, but Shakespeare didn’t really leave room for him to succeed. Otherwise, it’s all very bland and automatic.
Objective Rating (Average):
