In the post-Full Monty age, is there a working-class British community that hasn’t been uplifted by the power of self-expression? Vivienne (Minnie Driver), a well-meaning if foul-mouthed drama teacher in a Welsh town circa 1976, is intent on staging a production of The Tempest that incorporates songs from David Bowie, ELO and others. Naturally, some stuffy squares stand in her way. There’s a reason films return to reliable formulas, but what director Marc Evans forgets is that they only work when they stop feeling like formulas. When it’s indulging in glammed-up musical sequences, Hunky Dory comes to life; everything else couldn’t seem less inspiring.
