I've taught Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing in my Shakespeare and Film class nearly every year. But I somehow failed to realize that the screenplay was availble.
I've found the screenplay for Branagh's Henry V to be very interesting, providing telling details that aren't fully revealed in the script. The Much Ado screenplay has fewer moments like that, but they are telling.
I'm providing a few images of places where the script gives us insight into what's going on in the director's mind.
And I'm also providing a few images from the section called "The Shoot"—photographs taken on the set with brief descriptive labels.
