The Tempest

Scanned from Vogue

I love a good period movie, add the talents of
 a cutting edge director and an award winning 
costume designer, and lead actress and you have the 
makings of a great escape from the madness
of holiday Shopping.
directed by Julie Taymor (Lion King, Across The Universe) with costumes 
by Sandy Powell (Shakespeare In Love, The Aviator, The Young Victoria) looks to be a twisted 
version of Shakespeare's mystical thriller: an exciting mix of romance, tragi-comedy, and the supernatural. 
  A duchess, a shipwreck. a beast and revenge...dark yes...
but sometimes a fantastical voyage trumps it all.
