Shakespeare In Love

Its greatest asset is its anachronistic wit and charm. A 90s rom-com stuck in a centuries-old setting.
Winner of 7 Academy Awards in 1998.
Starring Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Geoffrey Rush, Ben Affleck, Colin Firth, Tom Wilkinson, Imelda Staunton, Simon Callow, Mark Williams, Jim Carter, Martin Clunes and Judi Dench.

Pay attention and you will see how genius creates a legend.

If you haven't seen this film, shame on you. Lol, I'm kidding. :) This was the first romance film which I fell in love with (yes, I notice the similarity). Everything was perfect, and I wholeheartedly agree with it winning the best picture for 1998. Or was it 1999? Anyway, it still won as Best Picture, and that alone says so... read more

Beautiful love story, and loosely based on the life of William Shakespeare. I love the cast in this film, and so happy this one won Best Picture over Saving Private Ryan. Screw that movie!

Description: Romantic comedy set in London in the late 16th century: Young playwright William Shakespeare struggles with his latest work "Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter". A great fan of Shakespeare's plays is young, wealthy Viola who is about to be married to the cold-hearted Lord Wessex, but constantly dreams of becoming an actress. Women were not allowed to act on stage at that time (female roles were played by men, too), but dressed up as a boy, Viola successfully auditions for the part of Romeo.

" The Ups: Sweet playful fictive story about what could have lead Shakespeare into writing "Romeo and Juliet" and his later epics. The film has a poetic quality to it and a love for the theater that is lovely to behold and the story is inspired. It also manage to make the romantic comedy genre watchable after decades of repeating itself to death as it doesn't go into the same stereotype traps as it's fellow films as this one tries at least to be a little more ambitious than most films. I guess it"
