Subject: Shakespeare Reference in Gangs of New York
It's brief. A character who is an Irish barber says to Leonardo di
Caprio's character after he (Leo) prevents an assassination: "That was
quite Shakespearean. Do you know who Shakespeare is?" I wasn't sure if
it was meant as an in-joke, given Leo as Romeo, or not.
