Video: "Much Ado About Nothing" (1993) Trailer
Excerpt from Roger Ebert's review of Kenneth Branagh's interpretation of "Much Ado About Nothing", May 21, 1993: Any modern film of Shakespeare must deal with the fact that many people in the audience will be unfamiliar with the play, and perhaps even with the playwright. Branagh deals with this fact by making "Much Ado" into a film that reinvents the story; this is not a film "of" a Shakespeare play, but a film that begins with the same materials and the wonderful language and finds its own reality. It is cheerful from beginning to end (since we can hardly take the moments of doom and despair seriously). It is entirely appropriate that it has been released in the springtime.
