Shakespeare in Love (1998) [R] *****

Will Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) has a bad case of writer's block, and it's only when he begins a secret affair with the lovely Lady Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) that he finds inspiration again. Unfortunately, though, Lady Viola is betrothed to another man, and in addition, she's successfully impersonating a man in order to play the lead in Shakespeare's latest production.

Featuring a wildly creative screenplay and an incredible cast, including Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush and Ben AffleckShakespeare in Love received 7 Academy Awards in 1999, including Best Picture.
