AVERY re­fresh­ing, very mod­ern take on the fa­mous stage play by Wil­liam Shake­speare. The clas­sic text hasn’t been messed with much at all, but the set­ting is some­thing else again. A lively tale of love and de­cep­tion no longer takes place in a Si­cil­ian port town of the 1400s. In­stead, the Bard’s busi­ness tran­spires in the Cal­i­for­nian beach town of Santa Mon­ica, right here in the present day. An en­ter­tain­ing ef­fort, even if it won’t ex­actly change the minds of life­long Shake­speare- phobes. Cer­tainly a rad­i­cal change of pace for writer- di­rec­tor Joss Whe­don com­pared to his last work, the ac­tion block­buster hit The Avengers. Stars Amy Acker and Clark Gregg.
