huliahoops asked: laughs because ive always loved twelfth night- probably because my mom and dad have both been in it separately with different adaptations. even before my pretentious 'i read books and all the shakespeare im better than u' phase, i just really loved the stupid confusion. also. sebastianxantonio oh god
Twelfth Night was what made me realise how much I adored Shakespeare. (as well as bringing me to the realm of film!Shakespeare)
My mother went and saw a version where, at the end when they all danced, there was a brief moment when they switched partners (they do that in old dances, all the women and men would briefly dance with the same gender) and brought Olivia and Viola back together and Sebastian and Antonio back together- and there- both couples hesitated, smiles fading for a second- as if they wondered if they had really made the right choice.
