Russell T Davies' fresh and funny film based on William Shakespeare’s ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'' has more attitude and invention than anything that's gone before.

The acclaimed ''Doctor Who'' showrunner commemorates the fourth centenary of Shakespeare's death with this full-blooded adaptation, starring Maxine Peake as Titania, Matt Lucas as Bottom, and John Hannah as Theseus.

In this modern retelling of The Bard’s classic fantasy drama, euphoric effects and melodramatic storytelling transport us to a tyrannical court in Athens and a wild wood where dark forces are stirring. This time, will the fairies grant happy endings to all who deserve them?
