Shot on location at the ancient and ghostly Stoneleigh Abbey, The Tempest is Derek Jarman's acclaimed 1979 film adaptation of William Shakespeare's final great play. It is the story of Prospero the magician, who lives on an island with his nubile daughter on an enchanted island and punishes his enemies when they are shipwrecked there. The Tempest becomes an original and dazzling spectacle mixing Hollywood pastiche, high camp, and gothic horror.
