remarkable


The company and cast were the best, bar none. Michael Pennington seemed the most natural although the acting and directing is the best Shakespeare other than Lawrence Olivier. Ian McKellen was dramatically stellar but not quite natural. This all comes from seeing vid 2 (that I stumbled on) at my university library

I remember the one with Patrick Stewart and David Suchet, it was a fine pice of work from both of them.

I love the internet. I remember seeing parts of this in my high school Shakepeare class, and never knew the name of it, until I looked up David Suchet on IMDB.com. I loved watching it, esp seeing how young Patrick Stewart, Ben Kingsley and Ian McClellan looked. It was also the first time I saw David Suchet as himself (mostly) and not one of his characters. The "DVD release?" thread shows me that it might be prohibitively expensive, but at least I know the name.
Oh, and I totally agree with macmar; the different takes from David Suchet and Patrick Stewart was the main thing sticking in my memory, mainly b/c it was awesome.

*Sigh...I'm such a fangirl*
