Shakespeare in Love



1/2

A fun, smart script with delicious inside references.

"What's it about, then?" 
"Well, there's this nurse..."
Fabulous.

This was also the first movie for me that ever provoked a standing ovation from the audience -- not at the end, oddly, but when Judi Dench traipsed thr...(read more)ough the puddle muttering "Too late" to all the cloaks suddenly thrown down. If you see a Shakespeare movie in a university town, be prepared for the historians and English scholars in the crowd to get very excited very quickly.

I was very happy when this won for Best Picture ahead of Saving Private Ryan.  Very.  Happy.
