This Castle Rock production of Othello came out in 1995 and was directed by Oliver Parker The movie is about two hours long and stars an excellent cast The movie stars Laurence Fishburne as Othello Irene Jacob as Desdemona Also Kenneth Branagh as Iago who is known for his roles in other Shakespeare plays Othello is about the Moor of Venice who falls in love with a woman by the name of Desdemona and they get married Everything seems to be going great for the couple until the seeds of doubts are planted in Othellos mind by Iago the movie takes you on a heated ride filled with jealously dark humor and death In any movie version of a Shakespeare play the most important thing to do is to keep the plot and the language the same but simple and provide many visuals This is done well in this version of Othello Othellos story line is brought to life in this picture by two important factors which are the audio and the visual aids It is also important to stick to the original play script when turning a Shakespeare play into a movie Othello provides many audio and visual aids to help a viewer relate to the movie on a personal level and it adds to the reader excitement and imagination from reading the play before viewing the movie The music in Othello which was composed by Charlie Mole was very moving throughout the movie The sounds of celebration at the party that evening of Othellos victory against the Turks and the sounds of joy from Desdemonas mouth after seeing her husband Othello return safely and well The music in both situations was uplifting and fast The mode of the music during Iagos soliloquies any death scene and Othellos mad thoughts of Desdemona and Cassio together were all slow and haunting Whenever Iago chose to speak about his plans against Roderigo Cassio or the Moor
