Don't believe everything you read....

Having lost my DVD of this film, loaned but not returned I watched it again after several years and am pleased and impressed. It retains a warm good feel factor. Remember it is a reconstruction, an interpretation, a clever witty script, a story that has charm, what more do you want?

Revolutionary

You remember what Shrek did for animated film? That's what this does for modern period pieces. You go in not knowing what to expect. Expecting some boring rendition of Shakespeare's life. It's so far from that. And boy will you fall in love with Joseph Fiennes. If you didn't know the "other" Fiennes - you will now.

Without spoiling it - you will see a story within a story centered around one of the most famous Shakespearean works. It is genius. Also the first time I saw Gwyneth playing a brit and she does it amazingly well.

And not to be forgotten - the music is enchanting and does what a soundtrack should do - transports you, engages you deeper into the story.

Costumes - superb.

Geoffrey Rush - superb.

Even Ben Affleck playing this type of role - he's awesome. Actually, a stand-out in the film and doesn't have the biggest role. Just so well done. See it. I don't even have anything bad to say about it so I had to give it a 10. Oh and don't forget Julie Dench. Brilliant as usual, even more brilliant than usual.

Boring..

A young Shakespeare, out of ideas and short of cash, meets his ideal woman and is inspired to write one of his most famous plays. Shakespeare in Love is a 2 hours and 3 minutes film about Joseph Fiennes f*cking Gwyneth Paltrow, trying to make a play named 'Romeo and Juliet' and pretty much doing that for 2 f*cking hours. The movie is boring and uninteresting, the actors act like they never have acted before in an actual movie especially Paltrow which is an actress i like her acting in this movie was pretty dreadful and there's only one good scene in this film with Ben Affleck and a joke that's it other than that? This movie is just an overrated hot garbage dumpster fire that isn't interesting, the humor is weird, the story is boring and good actors are totally wasted. (4/10)
