The Merchant Of Venice DVD (2015)
Shakespeare's Globe 2015 production of The Merchant of Venice filmed on the Globe stage.
Faced with the disconcerting meanness of the bigotry and reprisal that permeate Shakespeare's tale of the abused and vicious moneylender 'director Jonathan Munby takes on the challenge with generous intelligence and nerve', casting Phoebe Pryce as Jessica opposite her real-life father in an inspired 'double star-turn' (Observer *****). Jonathan Pryce delivers 'a Shylock of weight, gravity and considerable complexity' who ' combines the roles of social victim and domestic tyrant' in 'a fine, deeply considered performance that highlights Shylock's riven nature' (Guardian ****).
