Twelfth Night / Macbeth Special Edition Two Disc Collection

Twelfth Night

This classic Shakespeare comedy of disguise and mistaken identity follows twins Viola and Sebastian, asylum seekers who are separated and washed up on the strange island of Illyria-a contemporary, multicultural London dreamscape that is both soulful and sensual, yet dark and dangerous. Parminder Nagra (Bend It Like Beckham) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Dirty Pretty Things) star in this story about the loneliness of exile, the pain of loss and the madness of love in this contemporary screen adaptation of Twelfth Night.

Macbeth

Using Shakespeare's classic text, Macbeth is set in a timeless zone somewhere in the twentieth century against a raw, urban industrial environment, giving the film a surreal quality. The abstracted setting puts this version of Macbeth alongside other modern treatments of Shakespeare, such as Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet. Starring Greta Scacchi (Emma, The Player), Macbeth is a deeply thought-provoking portrait of Macbeth and his Lady, and how the two characters sow the seeds of their own destruction. This is a Macbeth as never seen before, offering newcomers and Shakespeare lovers alike a memorable experience with one of Shakespeare's darkest tragedies.
