Much fuss comes from hearing and spreading gossip
The romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing joyfully asserts the meaning of its title as one of William Shakespeare’s (April 23, 1564? – April 23, 1616) most acclaimed, beloved, and compelling plays.
Release as a romantic comedy film brings audiences and critics together even though accolade wins are limited to Kenneth Branagh as London Film Critics’ Circle British Producer of the Year and Emma Thompson as Evening Standard British Film Awards’ Best Actress. The film indeed counts among the numerous, respected, riveting Branaghian adaptations of Shakespearean plays:
• As You Like It;
• Henry V;
• Love’s Labour’s Lost;
• Macbeth; and
Like the Shakespearean play, the Branaghian movie delights audiences with:
• plot complications;
• quick wit; and
• romantic endings.
