Movie Haiku:Sort of a sequel to SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE: actor renowned thru-out London for playing female parts (Crudup) finds himself on the wrong side of history when Nell Gwynn (Tapper) convinces King Charles II (Everett) that female parts should be played by... women! Danes, originally Crudupís dresser, becomes his rival. Elegant, thought-provoking, fun.
