Shakespeare In Love (1998)

I felt two things after watching the movie... 1. Love and 2. something for Gwyneth Paltrow (guess its more of something for Juliet, after all what man would not fall in LOVE with Juliet)

"But to be frank, and give it thee again.
And yet I wish but for the thing I have:
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite."
- William Shakespeare (as Romeo)

JULIET : Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake.
ROMEO : Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.
JULIET : Then have my lips the sin that they have took.
ROMEO : Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!
Give me my sin again.

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day ? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May"

I just can't resist adding in more dialogues from the play but, I guess I'll give it a break here!!

P.S. I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel love after watching this and even more after reading parts of it...

HMG!! Why not?? As I hit the sack after writing this post, all that I had in my head were flashes of the torrid love story of Romeo and Juliet!!! After all, all the love stories didn't make it so far along the pages of 'history', not without losing the love in them at least!!! I feel like they actually live somewhere on this planet, in the present...

I've got to lay my hands on a copy of the entire play...
