"No matter where you go, there you are."


Kenneth Branagh is William Shakespeare in the trailer for All Is True


The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground, and devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family.

Haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationships with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as husband and father. His very personal search for the truth uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.

Kenneth Branagh directs the film and also stars alongside Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Kathryn Wilder, Matt Jessup, Jack Colgrave Hirst, Michael Rouse, and Lolita Chakrabarti. The screenplay was written by Ben Elton.

It is getting a limited release in the US on 21st December 21 2018. It opens in the UK on 8th February 2019.

This looks very good and Branagh makes a great Shakespeare. However, he is no Portaccio!
