Very,Very Good.
4 March 2001 | by jrjcatSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's play.Genevieve Bujold is excellent as a young Cleopatra.Sir Alec Guinness excellent as Julius Caesar.I first saw this when I was eleven years old.I'm a big fan of classical books and plays.In fact I think this version was better than the 1945 Claude Rains/Vivien Leigh production.The Hallmark Hall of Fame did a great job with this production its a shame its not on video.
