The Tempest

Movie alert! The wonderful Helen Mirren (who has played both Queen Elizabeth II and our dear Queen Elizabeth I) is staring in a movie adaption of Shakespeare's The Tempest. For those not familiar with the plot-line of The Tempest, it is set on a remote island where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, a tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. Helen Mirren will play (a female version of) Prospero. Also starring Djimon Hounsou and Russel Brand. The film opens of December 10th, and is PG-13. See the trailer below:
