11:24 pm: The Tempest with Helen Mirren as Prospera

I finally saw the new version of Shakespeare's TEMPEST with Helen Mirren playing Prospera that came out last year. I had not heard much about it, so I thought perhas it was not good.

It was excellent!

The best version of THE TEMPEST I've ever seen. They did a marvelous job of bringing out the character and conflict of each part. Lines I had thought were dull really came alive. I was very impressed.

So many years ago I was impressed with her version of Morgan le Fay in Excalibre. I believe at the time she was mentoring a young actor named Liam Neeson.

When did this get release? Is it on Netflix?

It is. That's how I saw it.

And yes, she makes a very good Prospera indeed.

I could not find it to play directly on Netflix. I rented it from them as a disk.

Think I'll buy it, though.
