William Shakespeare enthusiast Kenneth Branagh plays the Bard as he returns home to Stratford-upon-Avon following a fire at the Globe Theatre. Without the demands of work and fame, he is confronted by long-repressed grief for a son who had died many years previously. Written by Ben Elton (Upstart Crow, Blackadder), this is a passionate portrait of Shakespeare’s final years.
