Shakespeare in Love (1998)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 3/5

 

PROS –
1) The fictional story with possibilities beyond a 2 hrs film.
2) Tom Wilkinson as Hugh Fennyman
3) Colin Firth as Lord Wessex

 

CONS –
1) A passionate love story but in fact it’s the most boring sub-plot of the film.
2) The interesting element of the film which could’ve made it funnier is not much explored.
3) There is no way this movie is better than Saving Private Ryan (1998). This Oscar win definitely didn’t age well.
