#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) is a known but struggling poet, playwright, and actor, who not only has sold his next play to both Philip Henslowe (Geoffrey Rush) and Richard Burbage (Martin Clunes), but now faces a far more difficult problem: he is bereft of ideas and has yet to begin writing. He is in search of his muse, the woman who will inspire him but all attempts fail him until he meets the beautiful Viola De Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow). She loves the theatre and would like nothing more than to take to the stage, but is forbidden from doing so as only men can be actors. She is also a great admirer of Shakespeare’s works. Dressing as a man, and going by the name of “Thomas Kent”, she auditions and is ideal for a part in his next play. Shakespeare soon sees through her disguise and they begin a love affair, one they know cannot end happily for them as he is already married and she has been promised to the dour Lord Wessex (Colin Firth). As the company rehearses his new play, William and Viola’s love is transferred to the written page leading to the masterpiece that is Romeo and Juliet.
Plot: Young Shakespeare is forced to stage his latest comedy, “Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter,” before it’s even written. When a lovely noblewoman auditions for a role, they fall into forbidden love — and his play finds a new life (and title). As their relationship progresses, Shakespeare’s comedy soon transforms into tragedy.

One of the best of 1998 and deserving of that Oscar!
Every so often a movie comes along that is literate, intelligent, and has magic and charm to spare. Movies like these affirm our belief that film is a terrific art form. Shakespeare In Love is one such movie.

The movie chronicles Shakespeare’s writer’s block while trying to write a play entitled Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter. In desperate need of a muse, Shakespeare finds one in the beautiful noblewoman Viola de Lesseps who has a desire to be an actor at a time when women are forbidden from performing. Shakespeare and Viola fall in love thus inspiring Romeo and Juliet.

As Shakespeare, Joseph Fiennes steps out of his brother Ralph’s shadow and proves what a dashing and charismatic leading man he can be. Fiennes has a Peter O’Toole quality about him and should become a big star. While his portrayal may be nothing like Shakespeare, he makes us believe in romance Shakespeare’s woes.

Gwyneth Paltrow is stunning as Viola de Lesseps. She throws herself into the part and handles an English accent very well as she did in Sliding Doors and Emma. Viola is the heart and soul of the movie, she is the reason for Romeo and Juliet’s existence and Paltrow truly makes us believe in romance.

The supporting cast is all terrific. Geoffrey Rush is amusing as the theater owner Henslowe. Ben Affleck is truly surprising a hammy actor, with good material, Affleck is quite a capable actor. Judi Dench and Queen Elizabeth and Rupert Everett as Christopher Marlowe round out the cast with fine performances.

The story is quite entertaining. Screenwriters invest the script with a healthy portion of Romeo and Juliet’s dialogue and Shakespeare’s sonnets that only make the movie more amusing. The story of Romeo and Juliet is familiar to us all, and the movie parallels the story in surprising and charming ways.

The most ingenious aspect of the movie is how elements of Shakespeare’s plays have become so ingrained in our movies, television, and theater, even though they were cliches in Shakespeare’s time. This movie actually manages to breathe life into all the old cliches thanks to a wonderful exuberance and a fantastic cast.

An intelligent movie that actually rewards the audience for knowing something about Shakespeare, Shakespeare In Love is a treat from start to finish. It makes literacy look sexy and makes sexiness look mature, a feat most movies only hope to accomplish Grade:A+

The Muse
William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) is suffering from writer’s block and needs a muse to inspire him.

Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) is a young woman from a wealthy family who loves the theatre. She disguises herself as a man and gets a part but runs away.

Will meets Viola and gets inspired by her and pursues her but Viola is arranged to marry Lord Wessex (Colin Firth.) A man of nobility who is very jealous.

Will despite being married wins Viola’s heart and writes Romeo and Juliet but as the play is performed. It might lead to a tragedy especially as Viola is earlier exposed as a female who at the time were banned from performing.

The film is uplifted by its cast who are uniformly good even Ben Affleck. It’s surprising to think that the film was for some years had been stuck in development hell.

Some years earlier it was marked out to be a Kenneth Branagh/Julia Roberts project. The film was obviously reworked successfully and Paltrow’s performance elevates it.

The film moves along with elan and enthusiasm. It never feels stodgy for an Elizabethan period piece.
