A study of Michael Hoffmann’s reinterpretation of Bottom in his 1999 film of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which treats Bottom and his interactions with Faërie seriously rather than farcically and resonates throughout the film in a shifting of focus from the aristocratic court to the dignity of the common man and his worthiness to enter Faërie.
