Succulent Saturday - the wonder of Shakespeare....

I am away... (as the neglect of my blog may reflect). I've left the husband and daughter at home to tend the chickens and kitten and am visiting my family in Utah. SOOO many pictures taken of wonderful things - but that will have to wait until my return next week.  In the meantime, we've just returned from a fantabulous weekend at the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City. Really really good productions. So until I get home and can actually show you pictures, I'll just post a couple of Shakespeare-related trailers for you (to stave off the withdrawals...)-

(so love this movie. Practically perfect. And if you like your Shakespeare in Love with a large dollop of Loreena McKennitt, see this lovely and surprisingly moving music video made with clips to 'The Old Ways').

And have you seen the trailer for the Shakespearean thriller Anonymous?

Looks intense and gorgeously visually historical at least.

What is your favorite Shakespeare (about him, not by him) movie?

But speaking of 'by him' - here's my favorite scene from the iconic 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet. The music... the costumes!! so so good...
