If Only....

  • Sep 1, 2000
Wouldn't be terrific of you could go back in time to Elzabethan England and explore London then? Better yet, why not tag along with Will Shakspeare as he struggles to overcome writer's block, get a new play performed, and win the hand (having captured the heart) of the woman he loves? Well, in a sense you can. Viewing this film will at least give you a feel for (and countless compelling images of) what it was probably like in young Shakespeare's London. Thus far, I have seen this film more than a dozen times and enjoy it more each time I see it again. Paltrow, Fiennes, and Rush carry most of the film but be alert to brief but memorable appearances by Dench, Everett, Firth, and Holm. If you like this film as much as I do, check out The Lion in Winter, Becket, A Man for All Seasons, the first few minutes of Olivier's film of Henry V, and Elizabeth.
