This is Shakespeare at his best. Accessible and entertaining, Twelfth Night is a comedy of love, mistaken identity, and confused gender. Moved forward in time to the 19th century, the play begins with look-alike fraternal twins Viola and Sebastian on a sea voyage. Their boat sinks in a storm. Saved but separated, each believes the other to have drowned and each finds love in unusual circumstances.
The play is a romp, full of fun and lyric speeches. Shakespeare points out that we can be drawn in friendship and affection to persons of either sex. Sexual attraction is an overlay to the affinity that we have for people who happen to be of the opposite sex. The major female characters are charming and strong-minded women who control their own lives. The TeachWithMovies.com Learning Guide to Twelfth Night helps teachers maximize the benefits of this film.
