Still shot from the movie: The Tempest.

The Tempest

Taking some license with Shakespeare' script, this Tempest puts Helen Mirren in the lead role. As Prospera, she and her daughter Miranda (Felicity Jones) are banished to a remote island. But that does not stop the sorceress from stirring up trouble, or making an enemy of a slave named Caliban (Djimon Hounsou). Get the movie review and more. »
