Did You Know?


The title of the film was taken from the William Shakespeare play "Henry VIII", for which it was an early alternative title. See more »


When talking to the Earl of Southampton, Shakespeare repeatedly addresses him as "Your Grace". When addressing an Earl, the correct form is "My Lord" (only a Duke would be addressed as Your Grace). The real William Shakespeare spent enough time around nobility to be well aware of the correct title to use. See more »


Henry Wriothesley: We have only Johnson now.
William Shakespeare: Who laughs at me because I speak no Greek and don't know whether Bohemia has a coast.
Henry Wriothesley: Oh Christ Will, why do you care what he thinks? You wrote King Lear.

Shakespeare's sunset.
8 February 2019 | by louiseculmerSee all my reviews

A rather melancholy account of Shakespeare's declining years in Stratford, though there are a few more cheerful moments to lighten the gloom. Shakespeare comes home to stay after having been mostly absent in London for the past twenty years, still brooding over the death of his son Hamnet, and is given a moderate welcome by his wife Anne (the ever reliable Judi Dench) and his two daughters. There are some amusing references to the 'second best bed' (which Shakespeare famously left his wife in his will) and a rather unlikely plot about some poetry which may or may not have been written by the long dead Hamnet. Meanwhile his daughters have their own problems. It is all a bit sad and slow, but with some pleasant touches that make it worth watching.
