Roger Daltrey, lead singer of the rock band "The Who" described studying Shakespeare in school as "like having a tooth pulled." As star of Shakespeare's shortest play, he makes the viewer's experience far more pleasurable. In a perfect plot for the screen, twin sons whose servants are also twins must find their father before sundown, or he will be executed. Costuming, directions and, of course, music, are beautifully handled. --from website
