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.

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.

I have it on the schedule to review tomorrow. I'll keep an eye out for this when I watch.

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