All Is True

Directed by: Kenneth Branagh

UK, 2018, 101m

East Coast Premiere

Actor/director Kenneth Branagh brings a lifetime of Shakespearean experience to All is True, his intimate and revelatory portrait of the Bard of Avon in the last act of his life. It’s 1613. The Globe Theatre has burned to the ground, and the great poet and dramatist retires to his family home in Stratford-upon-Avon. There his long-suffering wife Anne Hathaway (Judi Dench) and his scandal-plagued and resentful daughters await him, and he is haunted by the ghost of his son Hamnet, who died at 11. He also receives a visit from the Earl of Southampton (Ian McKellen), the great unrequited love of his life, the man to whom he wrote his coded love sonnets. As one would expect from these dramatic titans, Branagh and McKellen create heart-stopping magic on screen. A warm and wryly comic inquiry into the mystery and mechanism of genius, this is a fascinating, deeply felt portrait of a flawed and all too human giant as he comes to terms with his legacy as an artist and as a man.
