Preview, “Lord, what fools these Hollywood folk be,” a new indie “Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Rachel Leigh Cook, {Paz de la Huerta, Hamish Linklater and Finn Wittrock are the big names  — OK, not quite big — attached to this latest cinema stab at Shakespeare.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” isn’t my favorite of the plays, but it lends itself to modernization, sexy spins and the like. This doesn’t look half bad, and it sounds — like all reasonably respectable and respectful Shakespeare, like a long, lyrical song. Lovely.

An outfit called Brainstorm Media is releasing it next Friday, so maybe we’ll get a look at it before it reaches Netflix.
