The Merchant of Venice

Mar 18 - Mar 20, 2005

Directed by Michael Radford
Rated R, 127 min.

Underwritten by The Park City Librarians

Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons star in this adaptation of William Shakespeare?s well-known play. The film remains faithful to the original story about Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, who is both judge and victim. Pacino is his usual tour-de- force. Photographed in Venice in full costumes, this polished production with a prestige cast rings true with the enduring beauty of Shakespeare?s poetry.

Two thumbs up. - Ebert and Reoper
