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

Edit
Trivia In one of his scenes with Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh was supposed to directly cite lines from William Shakespeare's work, but he got it slightly wrong, so Dench started to laugh at the mistake. In retort, Branagh quipped "You can probably finish it!", which she promptly did. All of this was obviously not scripted, but nonetheless kept for the finished film. See more »
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, archbishop or monarch 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 »

Quotes William Shakespeare: If you want to be a writer, and speak to others and for others, speak first for yourself. Search within. Consider the contents of your own soul. Your humanity. And if you're honest with yourself, then whatever you write, all is true.
