What may have been Shakespeare's last play is also one of his most mystical, and has attracted some unusual film treatments. This version turns the male sorcerer Prospero into a woman called Prospera and uses CGI to show us the magic. The story remains the same - a ship is wrecked off a mysterious island and the survivors have unsettling encounters with the few inhabitants, not knowing that one of them is responsible for the disaster. For those that find Shakespeare challenging, the film's special effects, familiar actors and Russell Brand's clowning around will offer a refreshing route in to understanding the playwright's work.
