        • Hamlet  (vs. 1994 film The Lion King)
        • The Taming of the Shrew  (vs. 1999 film 10 Things I Hate About You)
        • Romeo and Juliet  (vs. 1996 film William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet)
        • Macbeth (vs. 2001 film Scotland, PA)
        • The Tempest  (vs. 1956 sci-fi film Forbidden Planet)


      • examine and determine the various ways the film version departs from and/or adheres to the original play

        • the existence of critical issues in society at the time the film was made
        • while the plays are considered excellent examples of dramatic literature, the film versions (as art) are subjective
        • Shakespeare’s storytelling to a theatreaudience vs Hollywood’s message to a larger mass audience
