Written towards the end of his life as a playwright, The Tempest remains one of Shakespeare's most mysterious and epic plays. This contemporary film adaptation tells the story of Prospera, an alchemist who is convicted of witchcraft by her brother and exiled from her kingdom along with her four-year-old daughter. Accompanied by a group of intriguing characters, they soon find themselves marooned on a peculiar island, unaware that one of their party is responsible for the shipwreck. A battle for power soon erupts and Prospera finds herself at the centre of the action. This retelling of Shakespeare's beguiling play uses modern film-making techniques and intriguing narrative decisions (such as gender-swapping important characters) to offer a fresh take on classic material.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
