Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes): "My story starts at sea. A perilous voyage to an unknown land. A shipwreck. The wild waters roar and heave. The brave vessel is dashed to pieces. All of the helpless souls within her drowned. All save one, a lady; whose soul is greater than the ocean and her spirit stronger than the seas embrace. Not for her a watery end but a new life beginning on a stranger shore. It'll be a love story. For she will be my heroine for all time....."
Shakespeare In Love (1998)
