This modern retelling of William Shakespeare's final masterpiece is an exciting, mystical, and magical fantasy with Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren (best actress, The Queen, 2006) leading a star-studded cast including Russell Brand (Get Him To The Greek), and Alfred Molina (The Sorcerer's Apprentice). Exiled to a magical island, the sorceress Prospera (Mirren) conjures up a storm that shipwrecks her enemies, and then unleashes her powers for revenge. Directed by the visionary Academy Award-nominated Julie Taymor (best director, Frida, 2002) - and complete with exclusive bonus features - The Tempest, with its innovative twist, is a supernatural dramedy filled with Shakespearean villains, lovers, and fools that will leave you spellbound.

The captured live in high-definition stage play was filmed live over two days with eight cameras at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival (Canada).
