I really enjoyed watching Much Ado (2012) adaptation of the play, mainly because I love the plot line of the original play. I thought it was interesting how they placed the movie in a more modern setting and pairing that with black and white and Shakespeare’s language, and direct quote. I thought staying mostly with Shakespeare’s intention was an interesting choice, especially with the changes they made, like Beatrice and Benedick having a pervious relationship. However, I wish they took a more modern take, rather than just the setting. I was really hoping Hero would have spoken more or at least have the ending switched and her not taking Claudio back. I thought because there was a modern setting it could have been possible to take a more modern angle on the play, and Hero standing up for herself and being independent would have a more powerful message.
