“He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man. And he that is more than a youth is not for me, and he that is less than a man—I am not for him.” ~ Beatrice, Much Ado About Nothing

Our Movie of the Week is the 1993 Shakespearean farcical romantic comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, based on William Shakespeare’s play. A box-office hit, this film stands out as one of the most financially successful Shakespeare adaptations.

Kenneth Branagh, who not only directed but also starred in the sharp-witted and quick-tongued movie, is joined by Emma Thompson, Brian Blessed, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton, Keanu Reeves, and Kate Beckinsale in this brilliantly cast film.

We thoroughly recommend that you take some time to discover or rewatch this joyous movie.

Much Ado About Nothing can be watched on various platforms.
