 Review of Were the World Mine

Were the World Mine is an interesting little film, but it is, unfortunately, a little film.  Based upon a play within a play, it uses Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as the plot’s pivot point as well as borrowing its theme.

The protagonist is Timothy, a more or less openly gay high school student with a reluctantly supportive mother (Is that an oxymoron?) and an active fantasy life. 

It may well be the fantasy element that causes me to be less than enthusiastic about the effort.  In this environment, fantasy becomes little more than deux ex machina, a contrived resolution to all conflicts.

Yet, despite my critical reservations, I recommend that you watch this film.  It’s a better use of time than most of mainstream Hollywood’s productions.  It is professionally assembled, pleasant enough to watch and the music is interesting.  It’s a good popcorn movie and should be watched snuggled against your loved one on a cold’s winter night.

It’s a tad warm and fuzzy, so that’s how you should be when you view it.
