Kenneth Branagh

All Is True

Kenneth Branagh returns to Shakespeare territory, this time playing the bard himself. The film follows the relationship between Shakespeare and his wife Anne Hathaway (Judi Dench)  in the tumultuous final years of his life that saw a devastating fire destroy the Globe theatre and the death of their only son Hamnet. There is no shortage of Shakespeare veterans involved; aside from Branagh and Dench, Sir Ian McKellan co-stars as the Earl Of Southampton and Ben Elton, fresh off his own exploration of Shakespeare in the BBC’s Upstart Crow, provides the screenplay.

"A tender, intelligent imagining of the playwright in retirement" - Screen International
