Trevor Nunn's beautiful adaptation of Shakespeare's much-loved play Twelfth Night showcases the late Sir Nigel Hawthorne's deeply affecting performance as Malvolio.
A stellar ensemble cast deliver freshness and depth to the text, while Ben Kingsley's shaman-like Feste brings an almost mystical dimension to the story.
The film won the Silver Hugo award for Best Ensemble Acting at the Chicago International Film Festival 1996.
A Renaissance Films production presented by Fine Line Features, BBC Films, Circus Films and Summit Entertainment.
