Price's 1995 version of Shakespeare's 'Othello' keeps the viewer's interest while staying true to the story. Although shortened and slightly modified, the action never stops, so that even restless audiences will enjoy and appreciate the genius that is Shakespeare. Desdemona is played to near perfection, and the actress portraying Emilia really appears to understand the different shades of such a deep character. When my acting 11/12 class viewed the film, we were so involved that one girl actually screamed at the screen. It was an enjoyable, tragic, comedic two hours that I would definitely watch again.
