Were the World Mine is a new feature film from director Tom Gustafson.
The film, which began as Fairies, an award-winning 2003 short, uses Shakespeare’s whimsical comedy to portray a gay teen’s struggle for acceptance. This feature presentation further fleshes out Gustafson’s exploration of teenage turmoil, lust and theatricality and retains one of Fairies’ finest actors: Wendy Robie (Twin Peaks). Robie plays Ms. Tebbit, an unconventional teacher at a posh, all-male academy, who sets out to produce a stage version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and recruits her star student, Timothy (Tanner Cohen), to take part.
