A Midsummer Night's
Location: Video Collection/Circulation Desk (DP)
Film critic Roger Ebert wrote that "Reason and love keep little company
together nowadays. So says Bottom in William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer
Night's Dream," and he could be describing the play he occupies. It is
an enchanted folly suggesting that romance is a matter of chance, since
love is blind; at the right moment we are likely to fall in love with
the first person our eyes light upon. Much of the play's fun comes during
a long night in the forest, where the mischief-maker anoints the eyes
of sleeping lovers with magic potions that cause them to adore the first
person they see upon awakening". The film stars
Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer and Calista Flockahart
and premiered in 1999.
