The Tempest

Directed by Julie Taymor

With Helen Mirren and Russell Brand

Opens 12.10

Julie Taymor (Across the Universe) unleashes her creative urges on the Shakespeare classic, starting with a twist: sex change! Wizard Prospero is now Prospera (Helen Mirren), the displaced Duchess of Milan. Scampering about the stunning Hawaiian locations are Russell Brand as the drunkard Trinculo, Ben Whishaw as the spirit Ariel and Djimon Hounsou as Caliban.
