As You Like It
Writer-director-actor Kenneth Branagh -- whose Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, and Hamlet rank among the great Shakespearean screen adaptations -- brings the Bard's most delightful comedy to sensational life. Rosalind (Bryce Dallas Howard) is a young woman living in the court of her uncle when she falls in love with Orlando (David Oyelowo), a young gentleman of the kingdom. When Rosalind is banished, she flees into the Forest of Arden disguised as a man...only to encounter Orlando, who has also been exiled! But can she win his heart, disguised as she is? With a setting inspired by 19th-century Japan and a star-studded cast that boasts Kevin Kline, Alfred Molina, Janet McTeer, Richard Briers, Brian Blessed, and others, As You Like It once again proves that all the world's a stage.
