DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Despite the teen-friendly cast, this very dark, very faithful modern day-set adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello will find more fans in older audiences than with the younger set. Strong violent and sexual content make the film too intense for children.

Good

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "To an astonishing degree, ''O'' gets the tragic Shakespeare mood, that somber stentorian passion born of hidden slivers of ambition and betrayal. Some of the movie, admittedly, is labored. Minus the treacherous eloquence of Shakespeare's words, the business of the stolen handkerchief now plays like the hoariest of hoary devices. Yet the central triangle retains its fevered racial-sexual ambiguity.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "..well-crafted and compelling cautionary tale...  ..artful and emotionally compelling...' O is disturbing, but in all the right ways."

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "...a good film for most of the way, and then a powerful film at the end, when, in the traditional Shakespearean manner, all of the plot threads come together, the victims are killed, the survivors mourn, and life goes on.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Above Average "Update one of Shakespeare's comedies and set it in a contemporary high school and you get something as light and forgettable as 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU. Do the same to one of the major tragedies and you wind up with something else entirely: Beverly Hills, 90210 with a body count. Case in point: this dark, intelligent treatment of Othello from writer-director Tim Blake Nelson.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Very mixed opinions! Only about half of the moviegoers truly enjoyed it, rating it "Very Good" and higher. A very significant number of the remaining half rated it "Terrible," which is very rare and obviously very bad.

The guys seemed to enjoy it slightly more than the ladies. This may have something to do with the very strong content, so I HIGHLY ADVISE that you read the detailed content before deciding to see "O."

My suggestion is to read all the information we offer, especially the content and detailed opinions, before deciding if this movie is for you.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In an elite private school located deep in the new American South,  NBA hopeful Odin James (Mekhi Phifer), is the only black student at the school. Playing the point guard position, Odin is a basketball scout's dream, possessing the talent and poise to go strait from high school to the pros. Odin not only enjoys widespread popularity with the students, he is dating Desi Brable (Julia Stiles), the beautiful daughter of the Dean of Palmetto Grove Academy (John Heard). The envy of all their friends, Odin and Desi have found what many others lack - a love that is deep, honest, and pure.

Odin's best friend, Hugo Goulding (Josh Hartnett), drawn closely from Shakespeare's nefarious lago, is a starting forward on the basketball team, and the son of  Coach Duke Goulding (Martin Sheen). Hugo has been asked by his father to look out for Odin because of the particular pressures facing him at Palmetto Grove. Yet Hugo is bitterly envious of Odin and the attention Odin receives from the coach and everyone else at school. An introspective and somewhat mysterious young man, Hugo seeks to manipulate those around him to his own private ends.

Placed by his own father in the role of Odin confidante, Hugo is, in reality, seeking to destroy the very person he pretends to befriend. Striking at the very core of Odin's soul, Hugo convinces him that Desi is having an affair with another member of the basketball team, Michael Casio (Andrew Keegan).

Meanwhile, Hugo's rich roommate Roger Rodriguez (Elden Henson), will do anything to be popular. Desperately in love with Desi, Roger becomes another pawn in Hugo's dark scheme. Even Hugo's girlfriend Emily (Rain Phoenix), succumbs to his machinations, playing a part in her roommate Desi's downfall.

As the basketball season comes to a dramatic finish, conflict among the six friends escalates into in evocable tragedy when Hugo executes a plan prompting Odin to throw away all that he cares about most, the woman he loves, his bright future, his very soul.
