Notes: Title from resource description page (viewed Dec. 08, 2010).
"Shakespeare's tale of love, betrayal, and retribution is perhaps best known for the tormented and implacable character of Shylock. This adaptation of The Merchant of Venice, directed by University of Cambridge visiting scholar Douglas Morse, focuses on Portia's story as well as the play's essential humor-aspects frequently given short shrift in other productions. Filmed in an intimate, cinematic style at Cambridge's renowned ADC Theatre, the program gives students the opportunity to closely examine one of Shakespeare's most complex, multilayered works. The DVD version offers additional educational features, including a quick-access menu to important scenes and monologues and a 44-minute conversation with Shakespeare scholar Dr. Phyllis Rackin. (133 minutes + 44 minutes of bonus material)."
