Movie critic Bob Mondello has a review of the new romantic comedy called Shakespeare In Love, which features a script written by playwright Tom Stoppard.

It stars Gwyneth Paltrow, and it follows the young William Shakespeare, who is having writer's block with his comedy Romeo & Ethel — because he's fallen in love.

Mondello says the movie is witty, sophisticated, and a definite candidate for one of the year's ten best.
