Possible Worlds is a 2000 Canadian film adaptation of the 1990 play of the same name by John Mighton. The film is directed by Robert Lepage, widely considered to be Canada’s premiere theatre artist, and stars Tom McCamus and Tilda Swinton. Music is by George Koller.
Mighton approached Lepage to direct an adaption of his play, Lepage had seen a tape of Daniel Brook's minimalistic 1998 production of the play, and agreed to direct the film. He liked Mighton's combining of art and science and the theme of diverse, multilayered identity.
