Much Ado About Nothing

"Shakespeare Knew How to Throw a Party"

Originally a William Shakespeare production, Much Ado About Nothing has always been considered one of Shakespeare's best plays. Much Ado About Nothing is about two sets of lovers with all the elements of seriousness contemplation on honor and shame. This recent adaption for the big screen is a production of Joss Whedon that also was the director. This is Bellwether Pictures first film features which first debuted in Canada last year and then the United States of this year. The plot of the film is basically the same platform as Shakespeare's original. It all comes down to the two couples have different takes on romance as well as a different views on verbiage. Some of the differences used are the modern day setting and Ursula's role was slightly expanded by giving her part of Margaret's scenes. The setting takes place in the 1930s - 1940s and is filmed in black and white which helps to bring every aspect of the movie together. Whedon uses an overlay of modern English yet hoping to capture that original appeal of the classic play. Not only does the movie have comedy but also plenty of mystery and intrigue.
