Shakespeare in Love

This witty and spellbinding account of the Bard's early days stars Joseph Fiennes as the young playwright, struggling with a work he's planning to call "Romeo and Ethel, The Pirate's Daughter". Inspiration and love appear in the form of beautiful (and betrothed) Lady Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow). Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth, Ben Affleck and Judi Dench also star in this lively farce, which won seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress.
