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 much nourishment here...for love or anything
14 December 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Alex (Richard E. Grant) is a middle aged crazy professor. He longs for a simpler time. When he was in college, he staged a play in a remote English village and he wants to do so again. He manages to convince all of his former friends to give it a whirl. The production has multiple problems from the get-go and it is not a certainty that Alex's dream will succeed. What is more certain is that love may happen between members of the cast who meet again during rehearsals. Does this include Alex, too? Grant is a wonderful actor. One only has to see Jack and Sarah or A Merry War to appreciate his talents. He works very hard to make this film a success but the script is a meandering mess which seems pointless, at times. The other actors are all likable and the setting and costumes are likewise lovely, however. If you have any desire to see Grant at work, a bunch of beautiful scenery, and a couple of secondary love stories, then this film might tempt you for an evening. But, most folks will find it quite a boring outing, unfortunately.
