Great movie in the tradition of Truffaut and "Day for Night"
3 March 2016 | by afprjSee all my reviews

Like Truffaut's "Day for Night" (or "American Night") this movie is in the genre of stories about actors and acting.This production of Richard III traveled the world so there are awesome scenes in different countries, with different audiences, different challenges. Anyone considering a career in acting will be inspired. But it also has a lot of commentary on the play itself. Right now we are going through a Presidential election and it is scary how prescient and relevant Shakespeare is...

If you love theater, Shakespeare, or a good road trip story you will love this film. There's a lot of humor in it too.
