What makes this first-person documentary so unique is the hero s personal narrative: an actor/manager, dealing with the ghost of his father, both real and imagined. Taking place over three days, the cast rehearses and performs a stage reading of Shakespeare s classic Hamet, a monumental task that is rendered gracefully in this day of mixed media and cultural attention deficit. As the lives of the players juxtapose those of their characters, what results is a fascinating look at how, once again, art illuminates life. By holding the mirror up to ourselves, we illuminate the world around us.
