"Shakespeare in Love", the movie, is about William Shakespeare in London in 1593 where William has writer's block when he falls for Viola De Lesseps. Their romance grows but not without a few obstacles.

23 May - I think  Joseph Fiennes is hot. So is Ben Affleck. Gwyneth Paltrow is not as great as everyone makes her out to be. Sure she's cute enough and she's good in SIL, but the modern Grace Kelly she's not.
