Viola (2012)
First screened in August 2014
Director: Matías Piñeiro. Cast: María Villar, Agustina Muñoz, Elisa Carricajo, Esteban Bigliardi, Romina Paula, Laura Paredes, Julián Tello, Alessio Rigo de Righi, Gabriela Saidon, Julia Martínez Rubio. Screenplay: Matías Piñeiro (inspired by material from Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare).

Twitter Capsule: Appealingly smart and offbeat Shakespeare riff, but also a bit involuted, like a cocktail mixer for photogenic grad students.

VOR:   Half of me sees the agile contortion of theatrical praxis, philosophical argument, and diegetic contour that critics have lionized. Half of me smells a flavor of the month. We'll see?
