New Trailer Drops And Release Date Announced For The Shakespeare Sisters’ MUCH ADO Ahead Of Digital Download Release On April 24!
Following its premiere at London Independent Film Festival, The Fan Carpet are excited to share with you the latest trailer new romantic drama MUCH ADO ahead of the digital download release on 24th April, courtesy of friends of The Fan Carpet The Shakespeare Sisters!
Directed by Hillary and Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare, MUCH ADO will soon be celebrating its gala screening at London's Prince Charles cinema on 25th February.
Using the original dialogue, the Shakespeare Sisters set the classic story in a modern house party. Hero and Beatrice are cousins and best friends, who have very different approaches to love. Beatrice, burned once, is fiercely avoiding her arrogant ex-boyfriend Benedick and has sworn off men in general. Hero, a true romantic, is deeply in love with Benedick's friend Claudio, but too shy to say it. When they get trapped in a house with the entire boy's rugby team, they'll be forced to face the questions they'd been avoiding.

Excited about the upcoming release Directors Hillary and Anna-Elizabeth Shakespeare said "We're really excited to release this film and can't wait to take 'Much Ado' around the U.K. from screens in London, starting at The Prince Charles, to Suffolk where the film was shot, to a special event in Shakespeare’s Stratford! Our take was to focus the story on Beatrice and Hero's perspective especially, and tell it from a coming of age perspective, where the characters are all university students at a house party. It was really fun working with such a young cast and finding a new way to tell our beloved classic."
MUCH ADO will screen at London's The Prince Charles Cinema on 25th February ahead of the Digital Download release from 24th April!
