Samuel Crowl’s Shakespeare at the Cineplex: The Kenneth Branagh Era is the first thorough exploration of the fifteen major Shakespeare films released since the surprising success of Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V (1989). Crowl presents the rich variety of these films in the “long decade” between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The productions range from Hollywood-saturated films to more modest, experimental offerings. Only now available in paperback after strong hardcover sales, Shakespeare at the Cineplex will be welcome reading for fans, students, and scholars of Shakespeare in performance. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Samuel Crowl, Trustee Professor of English at Ohio University, is the author of Shakespeare Observed: Studies in Performance on Stage and Screen (Ohio, 1992).
