Some Shakespeare also in ~Tea with Mussolini~, including Dame Joan
Plowright playing the balcony scene from R&J with cut-out puppets, and
quoting the St. Crispin's Day speech from HV at a young boy departing
for school in Austria.  Lord Laurence might be chuckling.  A later
quotation proves climactic, but I won't ruin any more of the plot!  Dame
Judi Dench emoting at the tomb of Barrett Browning is alone worth the
price of admission.

Subject:        American Pie reference to Henry the Fourth, Part One

In the film American Pie, an update of he 1980s Porky's series, there is
a brief reference to Hal and Falstaff in an English class.  The teacher
tells the students that they are making a transition not unlike Hal's:
just as he had to leave Falstaff, they'll have to leave high school. Two
of the main characters (students in the class) ignore him and, as we
hear their conversation, the teacher's words fade into the background.
In a subsequent shot of the classroom, there's a large poster with the
words "Shakespearean England" written across the top.

I recently came across a mention of a CD of opera arias entitled
"Star-crossed Lovers."
