A light movie, good for a relaxing evening on the couch.

This is the 1997 version with Richard Grant who played Simon Bricker in Downton Abbey. I love his work and this was an nicely entertaining movie. It's not too deep, don't expect any mind blowing revelations. It's simply the return of an original cast to a small hamlet in England for a Shakespeare play. There's a death (sorta glossed over) and a calculus of amazing proportion (I'll let you see that on your own).
It's fun and light and doesn't require a lot of thought to understand or enjoy.
You won't miss the characters when it's over, and that's ok too.
Amy Adler writes:
"Alex (Richard E. Grant) is a middle aged crazy professor. He longs for a simpler time. When he was in college, he staged a play in a remote English village and he wants to do so again. He manages to convince all of his former friends to give it a whirl. The production has multiple problems from the get-go and it is not a certainty that Alex's dream will succeed. What is more certain is that love may happen between members of the cast who meet again during rehearsals. Does this include Alex, too?"

But even barring my enjoyment of Mr. Grant's acting, this is a lovely movie.
