I enjoy Shakespeare. I know, I'm an Arts student, with a lit major, but I do. And recently I've gotten Kal into Shakespeare. So far we've watched:
- Henry V
- Richard III
- Much Ado About Nothing
- As You Like It (possibly the trippiest movie I've seen recently - certainly the most loved-up)
Which is not bad. I think we're likely to watch Twelfth Night next - I've got three different versions, only one of which I've seen.
Reb came in whilst we were watching Richard III, and looked at the screen. "Richard III," I explained.
She looked sceptical. "I didn't think he was around in modern times," she said.
"He wasn't; it's Shakespeare."
"Why the costumes?"
"It's post-modern," said Kal.
"A nod to Facism and other totalitarian rulers," I added. Then I paused, and said, "Plus, we get to see guys in 1940's army uniforms."
