Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1463 Re: Colorblindness

I wish to second Richard Regan's observation regarding the colourblind
casting of Love's Labour's Lost, and Branagh's films in general. I am
preparing a thesis chapter on Branagh in which I compare the content of
the films themselves with the manner in which they are marketed, through
devices such as posters and trailers. I would be very interested in the
opinion of the list upon the topic of representation of race in both
Branagh films and in the media through which the films are "sold" to
cinema audiences.

Best,
Emma French
