Shakespeare’s beloved romantic romp has never been more fun than in Academy Award® Nominee Kenneth Branagh’s* electrifying adaptation featuring an all-star cast!
Love faces hilarious, sexy challenges when one young couple (Kate Beckinsale and Robert Sean Leonard) battles treachery at the hand of a sinister friend (Keanu Reeves), while another couple (Branagh and Oscar® Winner Emma Thompson**) battles — each other! With help from a prince (Oscar® Winner Denzel Washington†) and a bumbling constable (Michael Keaton), the lovers just might prevail in this rich comedy that wonderfully “casts the battle of the sexes in the form of an elegant dance” (The New York Times).
