London, June 29th, 1613. The Globe Theatre, ran by the famous playwright William Shakespeare, accidentally burns to ashes. Seriously affected, he stops writing and returns to his hometown, where his wife Anne and daughters Judith and Susanna get surprised to hear he intends to stay there definitively, after two decades working in the capital, neglecting his sincere affections for them.

Sombre and serious
An interesting idea - what did Shakespeare do in retirement? Go home to Stratford and do some gardening perhaps? Well, a bit more than that, in fact, mostly confronting domestic issues, and memories. It's a thoughtful film, serious, sober, even likeable, but it's also unremarkable, despite the fine talent on show. It's clearly a labour of love, but somehow it fails to truly come alive.
