Storyline

Alex, a manager of a prestigious London bank, with ambitions and interests outside his 9 to 5 routine, find himself becoming increasingly alienated in the face of the new technology invading the modern world. He decides to return to an english village to stage, once again, a Shakespeare play, just as he had some years before. Alex reunites the original group of players who have lost touch since university and introduces three teenage students. At first sceptical about the idea, they are eventually seduced by Alex's passion... Written by Jean Lejuez <travelling.cherbourg@wanadoo.fr>

Not a real Poliakoff, nothing to see here
19 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As I understand it he altered his initial idea for this film for commercial and lottery-funding reasons with an unsuccessful end result. If you want to see some of Poliakoff's proper works, check out "ShootingThe Past", "The Lost Prince", "Perfect Strangers", "Caught on a Train" ,"Gideon's Daughter", "She's Been Away", and "Hidden City".

The plot concerns the staging of a play in an English village, and a reunion of its original cast by a London professional who decides to return there having made a success of his career , and the production includes Sylvia Syms, Richard E. Grant, Nathalie Baye and Paul McGann and Juliet Aubrey.
