This new film is a fresh take on Shakespeare’s comedy of the same title. Much Ado about Nothing is directed by Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Whedon fans will recognize many familiar faces, as all of the actors have worked with Whedon in previous projects. In fact, it was made at Whedon’s house in the downtime during filming The Avengers!
The film uses the original Shakespeare text, but in a modern setting. It’s the actor’s interpretations and physical humor that will have the audience laughing, especially Benedick’s (Alexis Denisof) background antics. This is a beautiful, well-made film that is good for both romance and comedy.
