Description

A open captioned screening of All Is True will be presented Saturday, July 13 at 5:30PM.

"A slow and soothing tale of family secrets and resentments."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

"Bypasses the worthy immortal regard earned by the writer's works and lets us see the humanity - and the drama - beneath the surface." - Odie Henderson, rogerebert.com

"A mesmerizing meditation on the last days of the greatest writer in the English language. Branagh’s performance is a triumph of ferocity and feeling that shuns Shakespeare the literary rock star to find the flawed, touchingly human man inside." Rolling Stone

Kenneth Branagh's All Is True is a portrait of William Shakespeare during the last three years of his life, as he leaves London and returns to his family in Stratford-upon-Avon. The film follows Shakespeare as he strives to bridge the distance between himself and his wife and two daughters, recover from the loss of his son, and come to terms with his legacy as an artist.

In 1613, after a devastating fire destroys the Globe Theatre during the first production of All is True (Life of Henry VIII), a distraught Shakespeare (Kenneth Branagh) returns to Stratford. As he saw his family infrequently during his two decades working in London, his wife Anne (Judi Dench) and daughters Judy (Kathryn Wilder) and Susanna (Lydia Wilson) are suprised, but hardly pleased to hear he now intends to stay in Stratford. Shakespeare, who is haunted by the death at age 11 of Judith's twin brother Hamnet (Sam Ellis), attempts to ease his grief by planning a memorial garden for his son.

Anne, who felt humiliated by her husband's public display of affection in his sonnets, is not pleased when the man who may have inspired them, and to whom they are extravagantly dedicated, the Earl of Southhampton (Ian McKellen), comes to pay a visit.
