The Merchant of Venice News & Features

In Shakespeare's classic comedy, Antonio is a young man who pledges a pound of his own flesh to a moneylender, Shylock (played by Oscar winner Al Pacino), so a friend can woo his lady-love in style. Antonio learns a hard lesson in loyalty, humanity, friendship and prejudice when the revenge-seeking Shylock comes to collect and he is unable to pay.
