Based on Shakespeare's comedy of 1598, this springtime tale is about two love affairs both assisted and complicated by the scheming of busybodies. One couple is coaxed together by gossip, and another is almost driven apart forever in this winsome and fresh adaptation shot on location in the lush hills of Tuscany.
