Monday at the Movies: Twelfth Night
This adaptation of Shakespeare's enduring comedy of merry and ribald romantic mix-ups comes from Trevor Nunn, distinguished director for the Royal Shakespearean Theatre, and features some of Great Britain's finest actors. Following a terrible shipwreck, bedraggled Viola (Imogen Stubbs) washes up on the shores of Illyria, a country at war with her own. Believing that her twin brother Sebastian has drowned, and knowing that as a woman she would not survive on her own, she whacks off her hair, dons a moustache and masquerades as Cesario, a boy. She gets a job working for the dashing Duke Orsino (Toby Stephens) and as his page begins pitching woo to the lovely and recently widowed Lady Olivia (Helena Bonham-Carter). The trouble brews when Olivia finds herself falling in love, not with Orsino, but with Cesario/Viola who herself has fallen in love with Orsino. More trouble follows when Sebastian (Steven Mackintosh) arrives. 1998. Rated PG-13. 94 minutes
