Will Shakespeare’s classic comedy is now a terrific Joss Whedon film.
Unless you are a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan or watch reruns of Law & Order, you may not immediately recognize the talented actors in the latest interpretation of Much Ado About Nothing. No matter- the actors tackle the challenges of Shakespeare’s clever, farcical play with ease. The film is set in the present and was shot in its entirety in twelve days at Mr. Whedon’s personal residence in Santa Monica.
Purists might be dismayed by the modern touches, but a conversation held in Elizabethan English over a Bosch dishwasher seemed entirely credible to me!
