Highly recommended. Kenneth Branagh truly understands how to get the beauty and drama of Shakespeare’s plays onto the big screen. Othello is a classic tale of suspicion, jealousy, revenge and obsession. Othello is read and studied in our 12th grade Great Books Program. Shakespeare plays were meant to be seen in theatre and not read in a book. We recommend students watch some of the great Shakespeare movies available now from the big screen. Parental discretion is advised with all of our movie recommendations.
