Freebie Postcard - A Midsummer Night's Dream

Been close to three years since my last post on freebie postcard. The following is one of my favourites ... A Midsummer Night's Dream.

[ Australia, 1999 ]

A Midsummer Night's Dream, a comedy written by William Shakespeare, portrays the event surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens to Hippolyta, the Amazon queen.

These include the adventure of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest.

The 1999 film version was written and directed by Michael Hoffman. This adaptation relocates the play's action from Athens to a fictional "Monte Athena" located in Tuscany, Italy.

Cast :

*  Rupert Everett as Oberon
*  Calista Flockhart as Helena
*  Kevin Kline as Bottom
*  Michelle Pfeiffer as Titania
*  Stanley Tucci as Puck
*  Sophie Marceau as Hippolyta
*  Christian Bale as Demetrius
