This has become one of my all time favorites and I can't say enough good about it. I was first attracted to it by the subject and setting, Shakespearean theater and Restoration England. But then I was completely overwhelmed by the craft of the film from the lighting to the music to the actors. I was not very familiar with either Claire Danes or Billy Crudup but becames an instant fan of both. Rupert Everett, Tom Wilkinson, and Hugh Bonneville are always tremendous and shine exceptionally well in this. The script is perfect. Every word, scene, and nuance are fitted together seamlessly. There is no wasted action. The humor is subtle, not as broad as in Shakespeare in Love. The love scenes are modest. Everything flows toward a most surprising ending. I was as much on the edge of my seat as the people in the movie during the last scenes of Othello. We have shown the DVD to many friends who all enjoyed it as much as we, and we've yet to tire of seeing it.

I was incredibly shocked at how good this movie was. Although some parts are disturbing to say the least, the message in the movie is very poignant and interesting to think about. I recommend this for anyone who loves Shakespeare and/or period pieces and just well written stories.

I love period pieces and wasn't quite sure if I was interested enough in the story to view it, but I took a chance and was so taken by the film that I watched it 3 more times! Stage Beauty is not only about men playing theatrical female roles in the 17th century, but more importantly, it also addresses poignant and complex issues about human sexuality. Billy Crudup (Ned Kynaston) gives a convincing performance as an actor who dedicated most of his life perfecting all the mannerisms of a woman and Claire Danes (Mrs. Hughes) is the catalyst who forces him to explore and come to terms with his own sexuality. The physical and emotional chemistry between these two are incredibly breathtaking. Their performances were so moving and believable that you never want the film to end! Ben Chaplin,Rupert Everett, Tom Wilkinson and Richard Griffiths gave equally resilient performances. The story line provided its audience with a very clever twist and even some surprising scenes. This is an outstanding movie and one that should have been considered for an academy award. I wish Hollywood would make more quality movies like this!

I love period movies, and this one did not disappoint. I had known that Billy Crudup was an amazing actor, but his performance in this movie blew my mind. I was teetering at the edge of my seat by the end of it, it was all so good!

If you liked SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, and most especially if you like well-written and well-acted comedy-dramas, get thee to the nearest shoppe and purchase this DVD. Claire Danes is a revelation and Billy Crudup a wonder as Ned Knayston, the leading female impersonator during the Restoration in England. Rupert Everett and a talented,attractive cast highlight this investigation into what it is to be a man and what it is to be a woman. All this and OTHELLO, too! Highest Recommendation!

This is an outstanding movie that puts you right into the time period right away.This is an incredible realistic movie about the time period, and the turmoil that went on in the theater during the time.

I first saw this film at the Gala Premier at the Tribeca Film Festival. This film shows not only a critical analysis of Shakespeare but the history of theater. I was in awe! Great film! Daines is extremely underrated as an actress.
