    • Synopsis
    • A contemporary romantic comedy inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. When young Peter's best friends find themselves in a hopeless romantic mess, he turns to his aunt and her charming group of poker playing witches to revive an old love spell - except she doesn't quite remember how to do it, resulting in a hilarious mix-up of misplaced passions. Amid the fun and high jinks of this film are themes of the objectifying of women, age prejudice, environmental consciousness and the mess we humans create when we try to fix problems with external means (in this case the supernatural) when honesty and open communication are far better tools for resolution.
