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.
