[Shakespeare in Love. 1998] Was it really that long ago? And since when was Shakespeare allowed to be that sexy? Complete artistic license on a life that we actually know very little about, Shakespeare in Love is the pure and fantastic creation spouted from the fountain pens of Marc Norman and playwright Tom Stoppard. • When Roger Ebert reviewed the film he said: "There is a boatman in "Shakespeare in Love" who ferries Shakespeare across the Thames while bragging, "I had Christopher Marlowe in my boat once." As Shakespeare steps ashore, the boatman tries to give him a script to read. The contemporary feel of the humor (like Shakespeare's coffee mug, inscribed "Souvenir of Stratford-Upon-Avon") makes the movie play like a contest between "Masterpiece Theatre" and Mel Brooks... Is this a movie or an anthology? I didn't care. I was carried along by the wit, the energy and a surprising sweetness." A firm favourite with 7 Academy Awards under it's belt, Dame Judi Dench was awarded an oscar for only 8 minutes screen time! • Did you know that Jim Carter (aka Carson in Downton) who played Ralph Bashford is married to Imelda Staunton? Both of which played the 'nurse figure' in this film and the erroneous stage inspiration for Romeo and Juliet. • Why does it all work so well? "I don't know, it's a mystery."
Also, check out 'Shakespeare in the classroom' on YouTube - an educational film made for teaching Shakespeare at school by the cast of the film!
