UK film classification.htm  Tempest

Opposite the Oval cricket ground, a group of teenagers meet twice a week to rehearse a play. Over the course of nine months, they piece together a vision of an enchanted island, ruled by Shakespeare's wizard king. The process ends with a performance of one of the most emblematic works of a culture far removed from the world we now inhabit. Shakespeare's last play is about desert islands and mythical beasts. Using a blend of drama and documentary, the film follows the kids' progress as they stage the play, building a portrait of the contradictions of what it means to be British in this brave new world.
