See it if you like intellig re-interpretn of WS. MFM makes chgs to plot, setting, chars...and makes more sense. Clever devices (headlines, portraits).
Don't see it if you want faithful adherence to plot (new ending is gd). Actors gd, but no standouts.Nice sm Flea space! 90 min MFM moves fast. Gr WS lines.

See it if you like 10 Things I Hate About You. Unpretentious, a bit geeky/fantastical. Shkspr spoken naturally by actors who know what they’re saying.
Don't see it if you'll miss the nun fetish. Civil servants replace nuns/monks. Supreme Court references will be too on the nose for some. Low budget prod.
See it if YOU SUSPEND YOUR SHAKESPEARE BONE. If you are not looking for M4M and just want to have 90 minutes of fun.
Don't see it if You are expecting Measure for Measure. All the interesting subterfuge and plot points are edited out. Left with a romp.

Don't see it if You will be put off by significant cuts, text changes, gender-bending, and Shakespeare adapted to a contemporary setting.
