I just saw the Shakespeare Uncovered documentary about Romeo and Juliet, hosted by Joseph Fiennes.

Not long ago, it was announced that a sequel to Shakespeare in Love will be made, and let's cross our fingers it gets made. I wrote about that here.

There are also some clips from the 2009 Shakespeare Globe production starring Ellie Kendrick, who is currently playing Meera Reed on Game of Thrones, and some shots of the New York Broadway production starring Condola Rashad and Orlando Bloom (my review of that here).

One of the greatest moments in this documentary is when Joseph Fiennes visits a school and rehearses some of the dialogue with students. It’s really fun to see him both inspire and be inspired by these students.
