This delightful film earned an Academy Award for Best Picture, and Gwyneth Paltrow took the Best Actress Oscar for her endearing portrayal of the beautiful and wealthy Viola de Lesseps. The plot centers on a young Shakespeare under pressure to produce a new work of art but lacks inspiration until he sees Viola. A playwright is no suitable match for someone of Viola’s status but amazingly she reciprocates his feelings. Their forbidden romance sets the stage for Shakespeare to write his masterpiece Romeo and Juliet. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Sponsor: Chases on the Beach – Where It’s Always Sunny.
