Storyline

Rosalind, the daughter of Duke Senior (the banished duke), is raised at the court of Duke Frederick (who is younger brother to Duke Senior and took over his dukedom), with her cousin Celia (daughter to Duke Frederick). She falls in love with a young man named Orlando, but before she can even think twice about it, she is banished by Duke Frederick, who threatens death if she comes near the court again. Celia, being Rosalind's best friend, goes with Rosalind (who is disguised as a boy, Ganymede) and Touchstone, the court's fool, to the forest of Arden. Upon their arrival in the forest, they happen upon Orlando and his manservant, who are fleeing the wrath of Orlando's eldest brother. What follows is an elaborate scheme devised by the cross-dressing Rosalind to find out the verity of Orlando's supposed passion for her, and to further capture his heart, through the witty and mischievous façade of Ganymede. Written by Jess D.

Crazy Credits

The character "Sir Oliver Martext" (he is the "vicar" who is supposed to marry Audrey and Touchstone) appears in this film, but is not listed as Oliver Martext in the credits. The reason for this is that in this film, the vicar is actually the shepherd Corin (who is listed in the credits) in disguise. See more »

A Review? Simple. It's absolutely Beautiful!!
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is beautiful! That's right. That's my whole review.There are stylised Komonos and rich 1890-ish Western costumes. A palette of amazing reds, maroons and rose colors set against a magical green forest with ancient towering trees and exotic oriental marshes. The romantic comedy element is all about being in love; being giddy with all consuming love. The Shakespearean words are edited short and crisp and are delivered naturalistically and effortlessly by the likes of Kevin Kline and Brian Blessed. Of the leads, David Oyelowo stands out as a very masculine and handsome leading man and Bryce Dallas Howard (an American) more than holds her own with the mostly British cast. Perhaps due to Branagh's pruning of the tesxt, I also found listening to, and understanding As You Like It just as effortless as the actors' delivery. I'm not an English teacher nor an Elizabethean scholar and this movie spoke to me, taking me on a wonderful escape. (NOTE: make sure to watch all the way through the credits.) It is obvious that Kenneth Branagh puts his whole soul into his movies. Thank you, Kenneth!
