Trivia

Ian McKellen, who played Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, to whom William Shakespeare dedicated various plays and poems including "Venus and Adonis" or "Lucretia", has played many Shakespearean roles in his career such as Richard II in The Tragedy of King Richard II (1970), Hamlet in Hamlet (1970), Macbeth in A Performance of Macbeth (1979), Iago in Theatre Night: Othello (1990), Richard III in Richard III (1995) and King Lear in King Lear (2008) and National Theatre Live: King Lear (2018).

Goofs

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 »

Beautiful, sad, patient... an almost perfect film.
27 December 2018 | by roaming_charges_may_applySee all my reviews

It has been years since a Kenneth Branagh film made me feel something in the way this does. His Hollywood success has also been accompanied by a change in directorial style and a change in his focus on storytelling ... but this film returns to what made him so great early on ... a passion for the subject material. The end result is a period film that feels actually of the period, while also fully modern. Every frame of film is like a historical painting. And the story and characters are fully expressed. Slow, patient, sad, and beautiful - this is a wonderful film with wonderful writing, acting and directing. The pacing and editing is deliberate. What some critics have considered to be slow or meandering I would call the story taking it's time and earning it's value. Highly recommended.
