Such stuff as dreams are made on


We'll be screening the 2010 version of The Tempest on Wednesday, November 12 at 6:30 p.m.

Helen Mirren stars in the principal role of Prospera, the duchess of Milan, who is usurped by her brother, Antonio (Chris Cooper), and cast off on a raft to die with her three-year-old daughter, Miranda (Felicity Jones). Twelve years later, Prospera has her opportunity for revenge; she conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure her usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island.
 
Ben Whishaw plays Ariel, a spirit who aids Prospera; Djimon Hounsou is Caliban, Prospera’s slave; David Strathairn is Alonso, the King of Naples; and Reeve Carney is Ferdinand, Alonso’s son, who falls in love with Miranda.
