Shakespeare High Giveaway: Congratulations to Our 10-Word Review Winner!

Movieline's New York-based readers had a chance over the last few days to review their favorite Shakespeare screen adaptation in exactly 10 words for a chance to win tickets to tomorrow's opening-night screening of the documentary Shakespeare High. After browsing the entries left both here and on Twitter, we have settled on a winner!

Congratulations to Chris Connolly, who summed up the epic 1996 Hamlet thusly:

"Hamlet and Ophelia finally get busy in Branagh's perfect adaptation."

Bam. Congratulations, Chris! We'll be in touch with info about Friday's screening. And thank you all for playing!

Shakespeare High opens this weekend at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center at Lincoln Center.

    the winner you picked must be somebody on the staff's BF.

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      Yep, you got it: We rigged the Shakespeare High ticket contest to favor Chris (whom, for the record, no one here has ever met) out of the hyper-competitive pile of four other participants -- one of whom lives in California and was thus disqualified.

      If you really wanna go, I'll buy you a ticket. Either way, I know you're better than this.
