Movie-A-Day #113: Shakespeare in Love (1998).
Happy birthday, William Shakespeare! You may be 447 years old, but you don’t look a day over 430. There have been approximately 50 kazillion movies based on his plays (according to IMDb, there are at least three more due out before the end of the year, and about 14 more currently in production or development), but not too many about the man himself. That’s mainly because most of the details of his life have been lost to history, which means that “Shakespeare in Love” is almost entirely conjecture, and probably all wrong at that. But at least Gwyneth Paltrow is pretty enchanting.
