Shakespeare in Love is a pretty neat movie. It evokes a slice of the life and times of Shakespeare without getting too niggly about the scholarly details. Something like how Shakespeare depicted the Roman Empire, that’s how we are fed Elizabethan England. But, there’s truth in the story and storytelling that the heart knows as truth, even if the brain isn’t entirely convinced. It’s a chick flick with a twist that guys can dig too. I’ve heard some academy or other liked it quite a bit. One of my favorite playwrights – Tom Stoppard – was involved, so I’m good with it.
