Sonnet 23, dir. Rebecca Shoptaw

"Sonnet 23" is a modern reimagining of Shakespeare’s sonnet: the story of a boy frozen in his indecision about whether or not to confess his feelings to his male best friend, told through an impressionistic style that mirrors both the sentiment and the structure of the original sonnet. Rebecca Shoptaw is a junior at Yale. She has created a number of award-winning short films featuring LGBTQ+ characters, along with the currently airing web series Middlemarch: The Series.
