    This snuck in under the radar, but Shakespeare in Love is coming to Blu-ray on 1/31. Its currently available for pre-order at Amazon for under $10.

    SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE SYNOPSIS

    Hailed as “pure enchantment,” (New York Times), Shakespeare in Love garnered seven Academy Awards® in 1998, including Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role for Gwyneth Paltrow and Best Supporting Actress for Judi Dench. Co-starring Joseph Fiennes, Geoffrey Rush, Colin Firth and Ben Affleck, the film captivated audiences with its intoxicating love story, endless wit and all-star cast. For the first time on Blu-ray Disc, the release will also include audio commentaries, a “making of” featurette, a look at the Oscar® winning costumes, deleted scenes and more.


    Out of ideas and cash, a young Will Shakespeare (Fiennes), is in search of a muse to break his creative drought. After meeting the lovely Lady Viola (Paltrow), the two find themselves entangled in a secret romance that rejuvenates Will’s creativity. His pen flows like never before until he uncovers two unexpected truths about his new lover – she’s promised to marry someone else and she’s successfully impersonating a man to play the lead in Will’s latest play.

    Has anyone noticed a purple tinge to the left side of the frame? Everytime an object pans into that area, it turns purple. Was this how it always looked? Maybe my settings are wrong.

    Thanks, Matt. It almost looks like an exposure problem, but I'm not sure.
