…Cymbeline? I guess?  
A clip from the new film:

It's not just me, right? This is properly bad? Like, a failure of comprehensibility and of basic emoting? On both their parts?

I agree, that was properly bad. And what I hate is that it pretty much kills any chance anybody will ever do a GOOD film of it.

Yes! I feel this way a bit about Romeo and Juliet: I don't think no one will *ever* film it again, but it's going to be a long while from now because of Julian Fellowes.

But maybe the Globe or the RSC will do a good production and film it?

The video's freezing up for me, so I can't weigh in. All I can say is, Dakota Johnson will probably title her eventual memoir "50 Shades of Shakespeare."
