ALL IS TRUE

Rating: M
Length: 100 mins
Cast: Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen

A look at the final days in the life of renowned playwright William Shakespeare.

“Ben Elton has written a sweet-natured, melancholy film about the retirement years of someone he’s lately been turning into his specialist subject: William Shakespeare. The great poet is played here with genial sympathy by the film’s director, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench is his wife Anne Hathaway, wearied into resilient impassivity by grief, the unfairness of life and an awful secret. Ian McKellen has a colossal, emphatically wigged cameo as the ageing Earl of Southampton. ALL IS TRUE is sentimental, theatrical, likable – and unfashionable.” **** THE GUARDIAN.

“A tender, intelligent imagining of the playwright in retirement.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.
