Summary: William Shakespeare's classic tragedy of jealousy and deceit is splendidly adapted in this gripping film that places the story in a modern-day Southern prep school. Odin James (Mekhi Phifer), or O, as he is known, is the school's popular black basketball star who has it all: the talent, the looks and the girl--the striking Desi (Julia Stiles). Tired of playing second fiddle to O, his venomous teammate Hugo (Josh Hartnett) begins planting the seeds of treachery by telling O that Desi has been cheating on him. His nefarious plan quickly takes root, but Hugo underestimates the depth of O's rage...leading to a shocking and tragic climax. Also with Elden Henson, Andrew Keegan, Rain Phoenix, John Heard and Martin Sheen. (R) (AC,AL,N,V)
