Drama to Film
Follow a scene from William Shakespeare's original play to the scene as realized in Trevor Nunn's television adaptation of the stage production.
Since Nunn does not change Shakespeare's language, how does he transpose the Elizabethan world to a more contemporary Venice between the wars? How does this interpretation enhance (or detract from) the original message of the play?
