Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in a biopic of legendary playwright William Shakespeare during his final years. After the Globe Theatre burns down in 1613, he returns home to Stratford-upon-Avon to face the domestic realities that he neglected throughout his exemplary career. Dame Judi Dench stars as his wife, Anne Hathaway, while Sir Ian McKellen plays the Earl of Southampton.~Augustine Chay
ALL IS TRUE is a warmhearted, passionate look at the final three years of William Shakespeare's life as researched and directed and starred in by Kenneth Branagh. Judy Dench, and Ian McKellan, almost a cameo, are as beautifully performed as Branagh's performance of the Bard.
This is a wonderful film, and whether or not it's in actuality, it makes little difference. The world knows so little of Shakespeare's final three years.
That said, sit back and enjoy this incredible piece of vintage cinema.
