Shakespeare In Love (1998)

 Rated G, baby. We wouldn’t defame the Shake man by cursin’.

The 94th dose of your Next 100 Project fix goes all the way back to 16th Century London with a comedy/romance/historical fact-u-fiction. Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes have chemistry for eternity, but the supporting cast is dynamite too. We talk about the Harvey controversies (then and now) and, oh, a few other things. If you’re so inclined, you should make the effort to get 10% off your first order of Sparkplug Coffee by using the discount code “Top100Project”.
