Synopsis

What's in a name - well, the title does a pretty good job of describing this star-cross'd and star-studded historical caper that won seven Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actress for Gwyneth Paltrow. She plays the fair but headstrong maiden who inspires a struggling playwright named William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) to write Romeo and Juliet. But the plot thickens muchly more than that as the young lovers are caught up in the skulduggery and hey nonny nonny that forever swirls around the Royal Court. Judi Dench was crowned Best Supporting Actress for her eight-minute performance as Queen Elizabeth I, but then everything sparkles about this romantic gem. You will be amused.
