A hero's journey from the most unlikely of sources, a Shakespeare in Love for the reality set...
What makes this first-person documentary so unique is the hero's personal narrative: an actor/manager, dealing with the "ghost" of his father, both real and imagined. Reality intrudes as a troupe of actors and others gather to rehearse and perform a staged reading of Hamlet in three days. In this day of mixed media and cultural attention deficit, it is a monumental task that is renderEd Gracefully. The production goes awry, weaving an original take of a most primal story; holding the "mirror up to nature." As the lives of The Players juxtapose over their characters, what results is a fascinating look at how, once again, art illuminates life.
