Shakespeare in Love
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.
