Synopsis

As We Like It, a reworking of Shakespeare’s play, tells of the love blossoming between Orlando and Rosalind, who is disguised as a man. Filmmakers opted for an entirely female cast, thereby referencing Shakespeare’s era when women were banned from the stage. All set in an internet-free neighborhood in the bustling metropolis of Taipei, the film upends the binary world, making it a loving spectacle with plenty of music and doll-like design.
