Discover the keys to bringing the Bard to life, with world-renowned actors and the founders of The Royal Shakespeare Company, in The Shakespeare Sessions. This special features Kevin Kline, Dustin Hoffman, Cynthia Nixon (SEX IN THE CITY) and David Hyde Pierce (FRASIER), in intimate workshop settings with John Barton and Sir Peter Hall. Focusing on the language as the way into Shakespeare's magical world, these workshops bring Shakespeare's characters to life on stage. The film explores the secrets Barton and Hall have discovered over the course of their extraordinary directing careers - about the way Shakespeare writes and the way actors can find clues in the text that reveal hidden treasures. Barton has been acclaimed as "the Shakespeare swami" by three generations of great RSC actors, from Peter O'Toole to Ian McKellen and Judy Dench to Harriet Walter (who appear in the film). The Sessions includes some of Shakespeare's most famous scenes in remarkable new interpretations by an extraordinary all-star cast.
