The Tempest

“Julie Taymor has a theater director’s eye for how movies work. This is not a compliment. The Tempest’s most striking innovation turns out to be a non-starter. Prospero is now Prospera, played by Helen Mirren, but there’s shockingly little insight or commentary gained by the gender swap. Mirren just kind of acts like a dude in drag.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 12/15/2010
