All’s Well That Ends Well (1981) Rated NR

Helena loves Bertram. He is of noble birth, she is not. He is sick; she has a cure and wants to marry him, but does he want to marry her? Starring Celia Johnson, Ian Charleson, Michael Hordern.

I’m not a big reader or follower of Shakespeare.  However, the British always do an amazing job of bringing his stories to life through film, and this is no exception. The actors, costumes, and sets all transport you right into that time, along with the shots reminiscent of the portraits of Vermeer and Rembrandt. Still, this film lacked a certain spark. It was visually stunning, but the story failed to draw me in. For this reason, it is a pass.
