Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing is a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with different takes on romance and a clever way with words. Winner of the National Board of Review’s Top Ten Independent Films award, the star-studded film features Amy Acker (as Beatrice), Alexis Denisof (as Benedick), and Nathan Fillion (as Dogberry). The Bard’s beloved comedy comes to life in this black and white masterpiece that the Chicago Sun-Times calls“swanky, sexy, and sophisticated, as bracing as a dry martini poured from a silver shaker on a summer night.”

Much Ado About Nothing runs 109 minutes and is rated PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use.
