The following nine-page study guide film packet that can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies class is used to accompany Michael Hoffman's comedy film adaptation of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" starring Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Everett, Calista Flockhart, and Christian Bale just to name a few actors in this all-star ensemble cast. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film. The second page is a page that allows viewers to jot and take down their own notes. Pages three, four, five, six, seven, and eight contain comprehension questions to guide the viewer on the work's blocking, characterization, cinematography, conflict, costume design, editing, foreshadowing, inferences, irony, mise en scene, movement, plot, setting, sound, staging, story, and subtext. The seventh page contains discussion questions on the work as an adaptation, its casting, its characterization, its setting, and its unresolved conflicts.
