Shakespeare In Love (1998)

Dir. John Madden

The film depicts an imaginary love affair involving Viola de Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow) and playwright William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) while he was writing Romeo and Juliet. Winner of seven Oscars, including beating out Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan for Best Picture, the film is enchanting and witty and Paltrow, with her perfect English accent, makes for the ultimate muse for Fiennes’s passionate bard.
