Film Series: Much Ado About Nothing

2012. USA. Dir: Joss Whedon. With Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof. 109 min.

The Avengers this ain’t, but Whedon did assemble a super-team of familiar faces for his classy homegrown take on Shakespeare’s comedy about marriage and betrayal. The creative yet loyal ad- aptation teems with wit and romance, hitting the sweet spot for fans of Joss, The Bard, and rom-coms alike.
