Waiting for Bill
16 December 2002 | by shawn_mb2See all my reviews

Good documentary about an American theatre group who travels to Hanoi to perform "A Midsummer Nights Dream" in partnership with a Vietnamese theatre group. Those who enjoyed the HBO series "Project Greenlight" will like this clash of styles and cultures which was ultimately funny and touching. American and Vietanmese actors must work together during a bilingual play despite not speaking each other's languages. The only problem I had was that some of the actors felt like they were "acting" when being interviewed for the documentary. Overall, this is a feel good film that could have some success in the art houses.

P.S. The film reminded me of Waiting for Guffman when the theatre troupe got news that Bill and Hillary Clinton may be attending opening night. An energy is added to the film (will they show or not)
