For a short amount of time, the film pulls you in with layers of meaning and treats to find. Every time I've seen the film, I've found a new take-away. Though it helps having an appreciation of Shakespeare, it can be a stand alone film. The film is beautifully executed and is a strong sense of what else is to come by this team. From the shots chosen, to the deep acting. It is apparent that it was a labor of love, as they took the proper time needed. The attention given to this film, was shown on screen. It is a film that makes you think, and is very cerebral. The beauty is in the details. Looking forward to more!

What else is next for these guys? Sky's the limit...
