    With over 525 films giving him writing credit, William Shakespeare is the most adapted-for-film author of all time. The 1990s in particular saw an explosion of Shakespeare movies – in large part due to the influence of Kenneth Branagh – that milked big-budget production values and star power alike. We will watch five Shakespeare films: the 1995 Othello starring Laurence Fishburne and Kenneth Branagh; Richard III (1995) starring Ian McKellen; Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet (1996); A Midsummer Night's Dream (1999) with Kevin Kline; and – perhaps the most famous "knock-off" attached to the Bard – Shakespeare in Love (1998). We'll ponder why Shakespeare appealed to popular audiences of the late 20th century and how his eternal messages were translated for that decade.
