Much Ado About Nothing

much-ado-about-nothing-586

(2012) dir Joss Whedon w/Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Fran Kranz [109 min; DCP]
Joss Whedon’s assured adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy features Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker as the bickering Benedick and Beatrice. Shot in black and white to accentuate the screwball aspects of the piece, MUCH ADO is a charming and sensitive version of this classic play.

“A delightfully spirited romp, filled with visual splendor, strong performances and flashes of post-modern absurdity.” – Claudia Puig, USA Today

“Joss Whedon’s take on Shakespeare’s classic tale is swanky, sexy and sophisticated, as bracing as a dry martini poured from a silver shaker on a summer night.” – Nell Mino, Chicago Sun-Times

“It definitely possesses that Whedon-esque nerdy energy, fizzing with humor, eroticism, booze and more than a hint of danger.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
