Shakespeare in Love

 (1998)

Shakespeare in Love Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

It is the summer of 1593, and the rising young star of London's theatre scene, Will Shakespeare, faces a scourge like no other: a paralyzing bout of writer's block. While the great Elizabethan age of entertainment unfolds around him, Will is without inspiration on material. What Will needs is a muse--and in an extraordinary moment in which life imitates art, he finds and falls for a woman who draws him into his own dramatic adventure of star-crossed love. It all begins when Lady Viola, desperate to become an actor at a time when women were forbidden from such depravity, disguises herself as a man to audition for Will's play. But the guise slips away as their passion ignites. Now Will's quill again begins to flow, this time turning love into words, as Viola becomes his real-life Juliet and Romeo finds his reason to exist. Yet all is not well in Will's world. For even as the parchment begins to pile up, he's plagued by the fact that Lady Viola must marry the insufferable Lord Wessex.

Shakespeare in Love Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shakespeare in Love is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate-Miramax with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.34:1. The film boasts an incredibly sumptuous production and costume design which both pop magnificently throughout this high definition presentation. Fine detail is really exceptional, to the point where individual pill can be made out quite clearly on Nurse's cowl, to give just one example. Colors are very vibrant, again especially noticeable in the film's gorgeous costumes. But flesh tones are also well saturated and accurate appearing, and the film also boasts a natural looking veneer of grain. Contrast is strong, if perhaps not quite up to snuff in a couple of the film's dark exteriors (the evening shots of Viola's house, one of which is included as a screencap to this review, being a good example). Otherwise, though, this is a sterling looking presentation that is sharp and clear and extremely well detailed.


Shakespeare in Love Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Shakespeare in Love's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 audio track is rather surprisingly immersive, considering the film's romantic comedy ambience. The bustling streets of London are awash in crowd sounds and fun (if perhaps a bit disturbing) ambient sounds like people regularly dumping their badpans out in the streets. The film also benefits immensely from the evocative underscore, which regularly utilizes actual songs of the period. A dance scene at Viola's house is a perfect example of this track's expressive capability, as it delicately reproduces the sounds of lute and recorder while also easily capturing the rustle of the women's thick dresses and the clomp of feet hitting the dance floor. Dialogue is cleanly presented and easily audible, and the track boasts excellent fidelity throughout all frequency ranges. There really isn't any LFE to speak of in this film, other than perhaps a couple of moments featuring fireworks.
