A labour of love for director Joss Whedon, this critically lauded, modern dress adaptation of Shakespeare's play features a starry cast, all linked to Whedon's past work. Alexis Denisof is Benedick, cynical about love and marriage, sparring with Beatrice, a witty singleton who disdains romance. But then they fall victim to a plot to bring them together. Shot in 12 days at the director's own house, this is a fast-moving delight that's a must for students of Shakespeare and lovers of smart romantic comedies.
