“All Is True” on Amazon Prime
An intriguingly imagined look at the final days of Shakespeare, directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also plays Shakespeare. With Judi Dench as his wife and Ian McKellen, who is superb as the Earl of Southampton.
After the Globe Theater burned down in 1613, Shakespeare left London and returned home to Stratford, where he tries to put back together the family he so long neglected. Lots of embedded references to Shakespeare’s works and personal life and place in literature for those who, like me, think of him as the greatest of any writer that wrote in English.
