As We Like It (2021) NYAFF 2021

Updating of Shakespeare As You Like it into the modern world where the kingdom is a corporation and the characters  are gender fluid.

This is a good retelling of Shakespeare  made with joy and love. How you react to the film will be determined by how you react will be to the flashy style it is made. Its animation, fashion and craziness all blended together in the story of two girls looking for love.

I liked this film but I didn’t love it. It was a bit too flashy for me and it kept me from feeling the story had any weight. It was like watching some reality TV show but less serious. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed the hell out of it but when it was done I was instantly ready for something else.
