Cinematique Presents: "Much Ado About Nothing"
Much Ado About Nothing is one of the season's most well received films, both critically and with audiences. Director Joss Whedon's (THE AVENGERS) sumptuously shot movie is a modern adaptation on Shakespeare's timeless classic, featuring a wonderful ensemble cast comprised largely of Whedon's regulars. In this rendition of one of Shakespeare's most beloved plays Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Benedick (Alexis Denisof ) have just returned to Messina after a successful campaign abroad. When Claudio announces his adoration for the lovely hero (Jillian Morgese), daughter of Messina's governor Leonato (Clark Gregg), Benedick teases him mercilessly. Benedick's scorn for love is matched by that of his nemesis Beatrice (Amy Acker). Matchmaking schemes are put into play and disguises are donned. Loathing and love prove close cousins. (PG-13, 109 min)

“Whedon, without skimping on the tale's tragic undercurrents, has crafted an irresistible blend of mirth and malice. “ - Rolling Stone
