Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this look at the final days in the life of renown playwright William Shakespeare.
Branagh plays Shakespeare, with Judi Dench as his wife Anne and Ian McKellen as the Earl of Southampton. The story is set in 1613, with Shakespeare acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground, and 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 and is 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.
