Shakespeare’s Passion
AXN Movies, 9:10 pm
London, 1593. The title of Will Shakespeare’s (Joseph Fiennes) last work, Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter, portends a failure. Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow), an aristocrat who disguises herself as a boy to step on stage (at a time when female characters are played by men), ends up getting the lead role, winning the author’s heart and changing the fate of the play. John Madden makes this fake biography of the most famous of playwrights, based on a script by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard. Geoffrey Rush, Judi Dench and Colin Firth are also part of the cast. The film won seven of the 13 Oscars for which it was nominated.
