Measure for MeasureFeatures
Hugo Weaving leads a promising young Australian cast in this gritty crime drama set in Melbourne’s council flats.
Adapted from William Shakespeare’s play of the same name, Measure for Measure follows the disparate lives of inhabitants of a housing commission whose paths cross after a shocking event occurs on their doorstep. Claudio (Harrison Gilbertson) is an aspiring musician with a tough upbringing and penchant for dope, while Jaiwara (Megan Hajjar) is a university student from an immigrant family. Hugo Weaving plays Duke, an ageing crime lord trying to ensure business continues as usual. Themes of justice, loyalty, love and revenge run through this moody contemporary retelling of an iconic play.
