Recommended Video in the Oakton Library
A Midsummer Night's Dream
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.
For more information about this movie, see the full review of A Misummer Night's Dream by Roger Ebert, film critic of The Chicago Sun-Times.
