Trivia

Mark Rylance and Johnny Flynn both play female characters, Olivia and Viola - not only does such cross-dressing follow a historical tradition, it also reflects the play's theme of gender fluidity. Furthermore, eleven years before this film was released, Mark Rylance was Artistic Director of the Globe theatre for an acclaimed all-male performance of Twelfth Night, with him also playing the part of Olivia.

Malvolio: Were not- were not you even now with the Countess Olivia?
Viola: Even now, sir, on a moderate pace, I have since arrived but hither.

She adds, moreover, that you are to put your lord into a desperate assurance she'll none of him.

This started me off wanting to watch more Shakespeare
12 August 2018 | by kittyKatkinsSee all my reviews

This was my first time I had seen Shakespeare done on the stage in the way it would have been portrayed at the Globe theatre. I have seen films and TV that were based on Shakespearian writing but was never really interested until I watched this production! It is funny, witty, cheeky, rude, passionate and the cast are just brilliant. Even done in old English it's actually easy to follow. This production switch on my interrest and since then I have gone on to watch other Shakespearian productions and even read some of his books.
