Summer Movie Night 04: A Midsummer Nights Dream (1999)

August 17th, 2013

It’s Summer Vacation and time to catch up on some of the shows and movies we have been meaning to see. Life during the school year can be quite busy with both a college professor and a high school student in the house, so it is nice to settle in for an hour or more over dinner and enjoy a movie all together as a family.


The high school year has only just started, but the Fall play has been chosen…A Midsummer Nights Dream. We have seen this play with our son before, most recently by the Independent Shakespeare Company in 2012, but we figured a quick refresher on the characters and story were in order before auditions this week.

This version, which an all-star cast is quite enjoyable. Set in Italy, in the late 1800’s, it allows for gorgeous scenery for both the real world and the fairy world. The acting is excellent, especially Kevin Kline as bottom. Of course, you will see many other actors you know, including a young Christian Bale (long before his turn as Batman), Calista Flockheart from Ally McBeal, Rupert Evert, Michelle Pfeiffer and more.

Overall, this is an enjoyable way to spend an evening with a old, old friend.
