    In the village of Monte Athena in Italy at the turn of the 19th century, necklines are high, parents are rigid, and marriage is seldom a matter of love. Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short

    "The 1600 First Quarto edition of A Midsummer Night's Dream is the only text of the play to have been printed in Shakespeare's lifetime and has served as the source for virtually all subsequent editions. It has many features suggesting that it was printed from Shakespeare's 'foul papers' - his manuscript draft - and that this draft had undergone revision before reaching the publishing house." "The First Quarto text is a full and coherent version of the play, close to that with which modern readers and theatre-goers are familiar. Its differences from other early texts, particularly that on the 1623 First Folio, are relatively slight, but they raise important questions about the stability of dramatic texts as they are transmitted through time, and about the authority of their authors - even an author as 'iconic' as William Shakespeare."--Jacket
