Digital presentation - The setting is Wales in the blistering summer of 1976—a time to explore one's needs and desires, especially if you're a high school student in summer school, or if you're the teacher of that summer school class. The young teacher Vivienne, played adeptly by Minnie Driver, has dreamed up the perfect way to let her young, apathetic charges explore life, love, and art: her production of "The Tempest" will be a rock musical, using contemporary pop songs. Rehearsals, she says, will be a safe place for them to do whatever they want. "Out there doesn't matter," she says. "Explore what you like." Since the cast is all high school students, their explorations are as tempestuous as Shakespeare's plot, which Vivienne spices up with an injection of popular songs from the likes of David Bowie and ELO. Both sweetly funny and emotionally satisfying, Hunky Dory is a charming, nostalgic mashup of Glee and American Graffiti.
