During our group read James tracked down a filmed version from The Globe.

Let's have our discussion of the actual such movie version here....tag team with our "script" reading of the text in the group section.

I shall try to find a copy this week.

Martin | 18 comments I asume I can make comparisons with the earlier BBC version. Both succeed in rather different ways.

Lucinda Elliot (lucindaelliot) | 583 comments No chance of my getting a copy, for various reasons, but I will read the discussion with interest.

Martin | 18 comments Sorry I can't lend it out Lucinda, the DVD has to go back to the library in a week.

This version is inventive, energetic, hilarious, with a joyous ending. It contrasts well with the very different, but still fine, BBC version of 1983. More later . . .
