A contemporary screen adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most celebrated and best loved comedies, produced with youth in mind but certain to please young and old. While staying true to the original dialogue and language, in his film debut director Tim Supple re-imagines the comedy of disguise, mistaken identity and misplaced love for a 21st century audience by stressing the relevance of the theme of refugees to our time. The resultant tale follows twins Viola and Sebastian, asylum seekers who are separated and washed up on the strange island of Illyria--a contemporary, multicultural London dreamscape that is both soulful and sensual; dark and dangerous.
