Don Pedro (Denzel Washington), Don John (Keanu Reeves), Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard), and Benedick (Kenneth Branagh) return home from battle and arrive in the village of Messina. Governor Leonato (Richard Briers) greets them, and Claudio falls in love with Leonato's daughter Hero (Kate Beckinsale), but Don John turns her against Claudio. Meanwhile, Beatrice (Emma Thompson) tries to gain the reluctant Benedick's love. Don Pedro steps in bringing both couples together under a false premise, and love blooms. This film will make Shakespeare fans out of even the most dubious. The sound track lingers long after viewing, and the two couples provide insight into two different styles of love.
