The Two Gentlemen of Verona (2012)

"Love will not be spurred to what it loathes."

Saddle up for a rough and ready tale of two young bucks who set off from the industrial city of Verona for the frontier town of Milan, where the women are fast and talk is loose. When both men fall for the charming but headstrong daughter of The Duke, the sheriff of Milan, they put their friendship, their honour and their lives at stake to win her hand. This is a story of friendship, love, betrayal, lust and restitution delivered with QSE's trademark clarity and sense of fun, live music, live gun-slingin' action, and a live dog.
