Story line not great. Probably historically accurate. Definitely not a "watch-again" DVD or one to be added to a collection.

I loved this film.
It is about a fictional love affair between Shakespeare & his love for a woman who desires to be an actress.
In Elizabethan Times females were not allowed to act on stage, & their roles were played by males.
The plot of the romance is an inter-play with the play he is writing - Romeo & Juliet.
It is well done & very cleverly presented. It is rather amusing & comical as well.
Anyone who loves Romeo & Juliet will enjoy & relate to this film.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Joseph Fiennes give a great performance, as does Judi Dench as an aging
Queen Elizabeth 1. The movie won 7 Academy Awards.

This is not a review of the film which harvested 7 Academy Awards but of this blu-ray release. It is the worst I have so far. No extra features at all, not even a trailer, and, yes, not even a chapter menu!! The film itself is presented in 1080i at 29.97 fps and not in 1080p/24 which is standard for feature film releases on blu! How low can you go? Only one more step is possible: Remove the lossless audio. Congratulations Alliance, never ever will I buy one of your products again!

This Alliance version is probably one of the worst releases ever! First, there is no menu and no subtitles. This alone would be somewhat acceptable in your case if you understand English accents very well, but on top of that you get a very bad transfer with a noticeable blue tint on the edges of the movie! Looks like bleeding light from the scanner. Really bad. Try to get the other releases, avoid the Alliance one.

The product is out of Canada and therefore 1080i not p as we are accustomed. The shipping charges are outrageous. I think I could have shipped a case of them for this price. Not a great value.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon August 20, 2010
Well actually, this film stands on its own. Who knows this could be the way it happened or should have happened. Writer Tom Stoppard takes a few liberties with reality and time to bring you the "True" story behind Shakespeare's genius, which would never have surfaced if it were not for love, friendship, tragedy, and a Virgin Queen.

Young Shakespeare has writers block. Then he meets and falls in love with Viola De Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow) the daughter of a nobleman, Viola on the other hand is interested in the forbidden fruit of acting.

This film is set with one-liners and many witty inferences as each character plays off of the other. We almost had the play "Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter". My favorite line is when Philip Henslowe: The show must... you know... William Shakespeare: [prompting him] Go on!

Do not miss Judi Dench as Queen Elizabeth. Her few appearances add spice to the film.

Judi Dench as Titania in Midsummer Night's Dream (1968) [VHS]

First, my Sharp bluray player had trouble playing this disc. And I have the latest firmware. There is no initial menu, the disc just starts playing and all you can do is change the audio track.

There are NO extras on this disc. I was highly disappointed. The video/audio quality are better than the DVD but not by a great margin. If you love the movie and have a wide screen TV, then buy it. Otherwise, wait until it's on sale.
