Palma.—The event was confirmed yesterday by CineCiutat (the former Renoir complex) which is where there will be a special screening of the film in English, which won a total of seven Oscars, and then a question and answer session with Fiennes who starred as Shakespeare in the movie opposite Gwyneth Paltrow.

The film depicts a love affair involving playwright while he was writing the play Romeo and Juliet.
The story is fiction, though several of the characters are based on real people.
In addition, many of the characters, lines, and plot devices are references to Shakespeare's plays.
The seven Oscars the film won including Best Picture, Best Actress (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Best Supporting Actress (Judi Dench).
Shakespeare in Love was among 1999's box office number-one films in the United Kingdom.
The U.S. box office reached over $100 million; including the box office from the rest of the world, the film took in over $289 million.
It has been reported by The Sunday Telegraph that the film had an impact on the Royal Family in prompting the revival of the title of Earl of Wessex, which had been extinct since the 11th century.

Prince Edward was originally to have been titled Duke of Cambridge following his marriage to Sophie Rhys-Jones in 1999, the year after the film's release.

However, after watching Shakespeare in Love, he reportedly became attracted to the title of the character played by Colin Firth, and asked Queen Elizabeth II to be given the title of Earl of Wessex instead.

Joseph Fiennes, who lives here in Majorca, is perhaps best known for his portrayals of Shakespeare in Shakespeare in Love, Sir Robert Dudley in Elizabeth, Commisar Danilov in Enemy at the Gates, Martin Luther in Luther, Merlin in Camelot, Mark Benford in the 2009 TV series FlashForward and for starring as Monsignor Timothy Howard in the second season of the TV series American Horror Story.

His first professional stage appearance was in the West End in The Woman in Black, followed by A Month in the Country opposite Helen Mirren. Fiennes then became a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for two seasons.

He made his television debut as Willy in The Vacillations of Poppy Carew. His first feature film was 1996's Stealing Beauty, co-starring Liv Tyler. In 1998, Fiennes appeared in two films that were nominated at the Academy Awards: he played Robert Dudley opposite Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and William Shakespeare in Shakespeare in Love.
