Some time ago, I mentioned having seen a trailer for the film Whatever
dir. by Susan Skogs. I guessed that there was a Shakespeare reference.
Rented the video last night and, sure enough, there's a scene in a high
school English class devoted to 3.2. of Julius Caesar. Oddly, neither
Shakespeare nor the plays are mentioned by name and title. The teacher
is, as is almost always the case in such films, portrayed as a geek,
nerd, and all around loser.
