Trivia

Mark Rylance and Johnny Flynn both play female characters, Olivia and Viola - not only does such cross-dressing follow a historical tradition, it also reflects the play's theme of gender fluidity. Furthermore, eleven years before this film was released, Mark Rylance was Artistic Director of the Globe theatre for an acclaimed all-male performance of Twelfth Night, with him also playing the part of Olivia.

The best version I've seen
17 January 2018 | by bob998See all my reviews

I have seen the BBC production from 1980 with Felicity Kendal as Viola, which was cut in many places, and the Trevor Nunn film from 1996 which had fewer cuts, but a really off-putting Feste in Ben Kingsley. So I was ready for this Shakespeare's Globe performance from 2012 which seems so ideal in all its parts: acting, music, singing, dancing. Once more I felt as though I was back in London circa 1600.

Stephen Fry is splendid as Malvolio, the equal of Alec McCowan or Nigel Hawthorne; he's very dry and punctilious until the love-bug hits him. Mark Rylance makes a touching Olivia, and that dead white makeup is very striking. His timing and gestures are just about perfect. As Olivia's love interest, Johnny Flynn plays very well (I think there can't be anything harder than being a man playing a woman playing a man). Feste is so natural, so lacking in affectations that his performance is easily the best of all I've seen. If I had one reservation it would be the crowded stage in Act V; there's just too much going on to take it all in.
