Shakespeare's classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon's film, Much Ado About Nothing. Shot in just 12 days and cast with a bunch of Whedon's famous friends, they use the original text to tell the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick, offering a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love.
