Summary, etc.:
A wonderful meditation on the creation of art, Academy Award-winning "Topsy-Turvy" catches Gilbert and Sullivan, the famed playwright-composers, at a crossroads in their illustrious careers. Having scored numerous hits (like "The Pirates of Penzance" and "HMS Pinafore"), they've reached a creative dry spot with their latest project. All seems lost when thanks to his wife's insistence, Gilbert attends a Japanese exposition in London. Soon, "The Mikado" is born. An antic comedy and riveting drama from Oscar-nominated director Mike Leigh, "Topsy-Turvy" was hailed by many critics as the Best Film of 1999. A delight!
