All is True

“All is True” is the story of William Shakespeare’s retirement years. Kenneth Branagh and Judi Dench are Mr. & Mrs. Shakespeare and are almost strangers since Mr. S has lived in London for the past twenty years. Neither of their daughters are happy and Will still has not gotten over the death of his son, Hamnet. Branagh is unrecognizable in the role. However, the story is depressing and a bit slow. His films usually have a certain humor and are seldom slow moving. This film is an exception. Interesting but not exceptional.
