Subject: New Branagh Flick.
This may not directly concern Shakespeare, but I flipped on the TV while
making dinner last night and the channel happened to be showing
Entertainment Tonight. Not wanting something that would really distract
me from deglazing, I left it on.
It turns out that Kenneth Branagh is starring in a new Woody Allen film
called _Celebrity_. It really seems quite good-not only is Branagh
letting someone else direct him in a somewhat self-effacing role, he's
also making a reflection on celebrity itself. Good for him, and, IMHO,
a welcome change.
