Shakespeare in Love

2h 3m Comedy, Drama, Romance, History 1998

AroView: Shakespeare’s art imitates life according to this gloriously fanciful, Oscar-winning tragicomedy, as the Bard himself (Joseph Fiennes), stuck in a creative dry-spell, finds the vagaries of romance provide bountiful inspiration for his composing of ‘Romeo and Juliet’.

Taking inspired liberty with historical facts, the fancy handywork of the screenplay (co-penned by Tom Stoppard) comes gilded with theatre truisms and allusions, then flaunted with magnificent wardrobe and ebullient casting.
