Shakespeare In Love

When Will Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) needs passionate inspiration to break a bad case of writer's block, a secret romance with the beautiful Lady Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) starts the words flowing like never before. There are just two things he'll have to learn about his new love: not only is she promised to marry someone else, but she's successfully impersonating a man in order to play the lead in Will's latest production. Winner of 7 Academy Awards(R), including Best Picture.
