2014 marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and to celebrate the life and legacy of the world’s greatest playwright, being released for the first time on Blu-ray is Much Ado about Nothing (out now).
Kenneth Branagh’s high-spirited and hugely entertaining screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy about romantic misunderstandings and undeclared passion. In Tuscany two lords, Claudio and Benedick, find themselves stung by Cupid’s arrow. Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard) is smitten by the young Hero, but his heart breaks when he is deceived into thinking that she has been unfaithful. Benedick has an ongoing sparring relationship with the feisty Beatrice, as their friends and family conspire to bring them together.
Meanwhile, intrigue is brewing, as the dastardly Don John (Keanu Reeves) schemes to overthrow his brother, the heroic Don Pedro, Prince of Aragon (Denzel Washington). Filming on location in Tuscany, Branagh has simplified the story to concentrate on character and atmosphere.
