Adaptation of what was a great stage show.
27 May 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

A classic Australian theatre production is given this film version, that almost works. It is stage bound - but the set is gorgeous, the costumes colourful and the cast excellent.

But it all seems a little slow and over-blown, even laboured.

Great Aussie cast headed by a radiant Gillian Jones as both Viola and Sebastian - some neat camera work makes their reunion work. Also of special note is Geoffrey Rush as Andrew Aguecheek.

Worth a look, but not completely successful.
