Much Ado About Nothing

Director: Kenneth Branagh

UK, USA, 1993

Run Time: 111 minutes, Certificate: PG,
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Language: English


Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson star in young Kenny's wonderfully accessible Shakespeare adaptations. The cast lists read like a Who's Who of the British theatre, spiced up by a winkling of comedians and international stars, including Sir Derek Jacobi, Dame Judi Dench, Robbie Coltrane, Ben Elton, Michael Keaton, Keanu Reeves and the ubiquitous Denzel Washington. In Henry V, Branagh is a robust warrior king, urging his muddied and exhausted troops to a famous victory, whilst he is equally at home as the confirmed bachelor, Benedict, in the sunny Tuscan setting chosen for the bard's lightest romantic comedy.

Average score 8.5
