Kenneth Branagh has directed his fifth screen adaptation of a Shakespeare play. But this time it's going straight to cable.

Kevin Kline, Alfred Molina and Bryce Dallas Howard star in Branagh's As You Like It, premiering this Tuesday on HBO.

Branagh sets the romantic comedy in Japan. But the main characters are still restless westerners.
