  • Directed by: John Madden
  • Cast: Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rupert Everett.

Joseph Fiennes, a pair of breeches and a few moody verses: a league of women will leave the cinema wondering why they never figured out at school that Shakespeare is sex on legs. Tom Stoppard's script is exuberantly confident, irreverent and witty. All the characters are sent up and Will Shakespeare is the butt of so many jokes, it's a wonder he retains his romantic gloss.
