DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
- This is an arty, effects-heavy adaptation of the William Shakespeare play, but with a twist: the main character is now a woman, played by Helen Mirren. Fans of hers should be pleased, and Russell Brand may be surprised by this change of pace project. The target audience is adult moviegoers with a taste for the offbeat.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Average But the film simply doesn't come together fluidly. Smaller parts aren't on par with the lead role, and special effects are overdone and cheesy. At times, the essence of Shakespeare's poetry is drowned out.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
After a harrowing shipwreck, the members of a royal court are washed ashore on various parts of a mysterious island. Their fateful arrival on this particular island is no coincidence. The exiled Prospera (Mirren) has used her magical powers to guide the ship here to settle a score with the very men who banished her from her homeland. Abetted by her sometimes unwilling aides, Ariel (Whishaw) and Caliban (Hounsou), Prospera puts her former tormentors through some dangerous and often hilarious adventures. However, when the king's son, Ferdinand (Carney), meets her daughter, Miranda (Jones), it is love at first sight—a kind of magic that even Prospera is powerless to control.
