Terrrific intro to Shakespeare for tweens

One of the funniest adaptations of one of Shakespeare's funniest plays. Stanley Tucci steals the show, playing Puck as a decidedly earthbound underling, in awe of, yet exasperated by his suave demanding boss Oberon. The lovers (Including Dominic West from "The Wire" and "Batman" Christian Bale) pull off some wonderful slapstick, yet Kevin Kline (Bottom) and the other mechanicals are unexpectedly touching.

MIDsummer - MIDddle school not so much...save it for high school

I showed this movie to my 7th graders. While some of them thought it was fairly appropriate, some probably felt it was a bit mature for them. The acting is okay. There really is no great version for kids under the age of 13-14 to enjoy, but then again, it really is best suited for high school and older.
