The film dazzles with its colors and textures, practically worshipping those jet-black leather jackets, while letting Ed Harris' eyes express what no monologue possibly could.

Perhaps this is what they mean by "problem play". In Michael Almereyda's new adaptation of Cymbeline, one of William Shakespeare's more troublesome works, almost nothing seems to click.

Primarily, what this moody contemporary update does is expose the play as a second-rate Romeo and Juliet that just wasn't made for these times.

"Cymbeline" has been teleported from the past with its fundamental problems unaddressed, and as soon as Google does a redesign or the next gen iPhone comes out, it's going to look as anachronistic as Ed Harris' tragic leather jacket.

If nothing else, this film made me want to see more Shakespeare and if it has this effect on audiences, then Almereyda is to be commended.
