19th ATHENS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Much Ado About Nothing

What is “The Avengers” director doing in a romantic comedy inspired by Shakespeare's “Much Ado About Nothing”? I'll let you know what he's doing: he has written and directed it, he has composed and recorded the score and he's even helmed the production, just to prove he's a little more than every comic book nerd's new favorite director.

Shot in black and white with rich comedic overtones, “Much Ado About Nothing” is a bet destined to be won, as Whedon delivers one of the most unconventional silver screen adaptations of the beloved stage classic. Shot in 12 days at his own home, it maintains the Shakespearean text untouched mining the director's raw talent, a man who can navigate the demands of a 220-million-dollar blockbuster with the same ease he can deal with the challenges of indie cinema.
