CSP 149: Spoil Alli — Shakespeare in Love (1998)

After the pain and suffering of the Torture Us series, we decided we needed some positivity—so we come to you now with the Spoil Us series, a trilogy of episode where we’ve each brought one of our favorite films for discussion!

Our trilogy concludes with Alli’s pick: 1998’s Tom Stoppard classic Shakespeare in Love, Oscar dark horse and favorite of English Lit students everywhere. Alli, along with Matthew and Zoë, pop the top off this seemingly frothy pick to see what makes it tick, and you may be surprised by the depth and sophistication revealed.
