Shakespeare in Love Movie Review (1998)

shakespeare in love setting

I must admit, their fashions they played is moderatly good but so is every high budget movie. . Also, there are wonderful Oscar winning costumes. It imaginatively unfolds the witty, sexy and timeless tale behind the creation of the greatest love story ever told. True love and forever happiness but what irks me is that no one thinks of Lord Wessux! If ever there was a film that didn't deserve any accolades, this is it. This movie is not a junior-high history lesson.

Shakespeare in Love

Joseph Fiennes and Geoffrey Rush give amazing performances given the weak script they had to work with, dashing the movie with a dose of comedy and great acting that carries the story at times, but not for 2 hours. She receives the part of Romeo; later that night at a big party her father is throwing, she meets Shakespeare and it is love at first sight. Anyway, it doesn't matter to the populace. Viola is prepared to do anything — including risking the regal disapproval of Queen Elizabeth I — to fulfil her illicit dream of performing on the London stage and pursuing a passionate affair with the greatest playwright of the age. However, the fact that it won the Academy Award for Best Picture, proclaiming it as the best film of 1998, does nothing but disappoint and anger me. Those who have worked in the theatre will be aware of many, if not all, of the in-jokes that the film is littered with.

THEATRE REVIEW: Shakespeare in Love • reviewsphere

shakespeare in love setting

At the end of the movie, Romeo and Juliet is presented as though you were actually sitting on the dirt floor of the playhouse. Surprisingly, the only actor to give Dench a run for her money is Ben Affleck, whose Ned Alleyn is a small masterpiece of actorly vanity. Not only was he sexy, he is a great actor and fit the character perfectly. Advertisement But all of that is handled lightly, as background, while intrigues fill the foreground, and the love story between Shakespeare and Viola slyly takes form. When the couple was separated in the end, I felt like a terrible wrong had been committed.

Shakespeare In Love

Gwyneth Paltrow gives an unimpressing and incredibly boring performance, looking like a Cate Blanchet wannabe, pretending to sound like Emma Thompson or Kate Winslet in her role as Viola, and like Kenneth Branagh when impersonating Thomas Kent. The conceit is that an ill-fated romance--the one great true love of this life--with a beautiful, smart woman is what inspires him to write his first immortal play: Romeo and Juliet. While the great Elizabethan age of entertainment unfolds around him, Will is without inspiration or material. To anyone who likes this movie, well ok, it's your thing I understand. I highly recommend Shakespeare in Love, just trust me, if you enjoy Shakespeare and his poetry, I'm sure you'll love this film.

Shakespeare in Love, film review

shakespeare in love setting

The director of the production was Declan Donnellan, with the rest of the original creative team from London show returning for the Canadian production. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster. Christopher Liam Moore es el director de esta adaptación del guión que sacó un Academy Award, un banquete ingenioso y romántico con música. Joseph Fiennes wears the same expression for the whole movie, and almost manages to make you think that Roger Moore was not so bad after all. I had not expected such fire in her, I always thought she was a rather calm actress, incapable of such passions. I used to think that Gwyneth was overrated, but here she's radiant. Recordkeeping being a little spotty back in the 16th century, not many exact details are known about William Shakespeare, which is one way the movie can get away with its artistic license.

Set From 'Shakespeare in Love' to Be (or Not to Be) a Theater?

Most of the Best Picture nominees and winners are films that grab my attention and have a strong influence on me. He recently directed The Hypocrite as part of Hull City of Culture 2017, and has previously directed for the Citizens Theatre Glasgow and Soho Theatre London, among others. The original cast included appearing as Marlowe, Tom Bateman as Will, and Lucy Briggs-Owen as the heroine Viola De Lesseps. It belongs on a stage with an audience swimming in the energy and unpredictability of a live performance. I could not help but fall in love with the beautiful emotion that gushed from Will and Viola Will is extremely good looking by the way. From a Dramatica point of view, it is intriguing how the two compare see. The closeness does the rest.

Shakespeare in Love (1998)

It deserved awards for costume and set design, and Geoffrey Rush's performance, otherwise no. All female roles were only portrayed by men. It is wonderfully Shakespearean in its celebration of the turbulent complexity of human beings. In its marriage of farce and sentiment, there is an undeniable magic — a comic spirit that can fairly be called Shakespearean. Imelda Staunton gives her usual turn of self-effacing comic brilliance as Viola's nurse. We all know the Oscars are simply about Hollywood patting themselves on the back, and nowhere is this more evident with the 13 nominations received by ‘Shakespeare in Love.

Set From 'Shakespeare in Love' to Be (or Not to Be) a Theater?

Maybe even worse than the Best Picture travesty, was the Best Actress Oscar for Gwyneth Paltrow. If you want to see a witty film of Shakesperean ambience, go rent the delicious Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, by Tom Stoppard. You may be familiar with the Globe, but that theatre, which Shakespeare was closely associated with, wasn't constructed until 1599. While the movie has no basis in reality, even as a work of fiction it fails miserably. Her time on film is short, but her impact on the film is enormous. The best part about this movie is its sense of humor.
