The Globe: Much Ado About Nothing Cert. Cert TBC Picture house at FACT

  • Released2012
  • Running time167 minutes

Shakespeare’s brightest and wittiest of comedies

Claudio loves Hero and Hero loves Claudio, and nothing seems capable of tearing them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice loves Benedick, but – because neither will admit it – nothing seems capable of bringing them together. It is only the intrigues of a resentful prince that force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.

Driven along by a romance all the more charming for being unacknowledged, Much Ado About Nothing is a miracle of comic and dramatic suspense, and in the bantering Beatrice and Benedick it gives us Shakespeare’s wittiest, most lovable pair of lovers.
