I'm glad I didn't live during that period. Men drawing swords for anything that didn't appeal to them and women marrying because it was their duty and the Queen said so? Give me a break. I've seen Judy Dench in other movies and she was a royal trip in this one.

Charming and cleverly written movie about Shakespeare's need to be in love to write his masterpieces. A real treat to see youthful Paltrow, Fiennes (Joseph, not Ralph), Affleck, Firth, with a great performance by Judy Dench.

Unfortunately, my (personal) copy of this DVD doesn't seem to have all the bonus features - no commentary, cast interviews or deleted scenes :(

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 but dressed up as a boy, Viola successfully auditions for the part of Romeo. Soon she and William are caught in a forbidden romance that provides rich inspiration for his play.
