Branagh Strikes Again

I’ve got a bit of a weakness for Shakespeare, on the page, on stage, or on screen. My favorite of the Shakespeare films is probably (probably) the delightful adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from a few years ago. Well, the Looking Closer Journal points me to this trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s latest effort: As You Like It People can get a bit carried away with choosing strange locations, and I have to wonder about setting this in Japan without casting Asians in the lead roles . . . but I really like the actors that were cast. Of course, who knows when it will come to a theater or video store near me.
