Much Ado in Santa Monica
Gail Paster & Friends' Shakespeare in Film
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning
Joss Whedon films his black-and-white Much Ado in his own house, with a familiar cast of actors in contemporary dress. How successful is this film and in what ways? How does it compare to Kenneth Branagh’s lavish mid-90s production? This lecture, based on a screening of the Whedon film, will refer as well to Branagh’s film for points of comparison.

This presentation is part of Gail Paster & Friends' Shakespeare in Film lecture series.
