Shakespeare’s classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film, “Much Ado About Nothing”. Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
“No matter what movie or television show he is making, Whedon is a master of wit, of clever wordplay that doesn’t just entertain but crackles with knowing energy.”-Billy Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
“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 Minow, Chicago Sun-Times
