Love's Labour's Lost Love's Labour's Won: RSC Film Poster


Christopher Luscombe directs this double bill of performances of the Bard's work by the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 'Love's Labour's Lost', when the King of Navarre (Sam Alexander) and his three courtiers forswear all pleasure - particularly of the female variety - in favour of a life of study and quiet contemplation, the arrival of the Princess of France (Leah Whitaker) and her ladies plays havoc with their worthy intentions. 'Love's Labour's Won' sees soldiers Claudio (Tunji Kasim) and Benedick (Edward Bennett) battling to win the hearts of those they love. The object of Benedick's desire, Beatrice (Michelle Terry), acts as his sharp-tongued sparring partner, while Claudio's path to true love is obstructed by the meddling of the embittered Don John (Alexander).
