Uncut - 01/01/2005
"The Brits do their dependable Bardic stuff, and the clarity of Irons' diction lets the playwright's meaning ring like a bell."
New York Times - 12/29/2004
"[I]ntelligent without being showily clever....Watching the film is like seeing a gallery of Renaissance paintings come to life..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/29/2004
"[R]emarkably immediate and contemporary without ever seeming to strain for this effect."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/14/2005
"[I]t attains a bona fide Shakespearean vibrance."
Rolling Stone - 01/27/2005
