It’s the summer of 1976 in Wales, and Minnie Driver plays an idealistic high school drama teacher planning a concept rock-opera version of Shakespeare's The Tempest. But banish all thoughts of Glee or High School Musical-esque synthy pop songs from your mind, because the music in the film is from greats like David Bowie, ELO, The Beach Boys, and more -- and sung live on the set by the talented cast.
