A retelling of Othello, Shakepeare's tale of jealousy and mistrust, this time set in a modern day high school.
Hot young stars, a hip, driving soundtrack, plus a provocative tale of jealousy and betrayal combine to create this controversial modern-day version of Shakespeare's classic "Othello." O, short for Odin James (Mekhi Phifer), is the school's star basketball player and the only black student at the elite Palmetto Grove Academy. Jealousy by the coach's son (Josh Hartnett) drives a wedge between O and the Dean's daughter (Julia Stiles) and erupts into a firestorm finale. This deluxe 2xDVD set also
