Sony Pictures Classics has released a second UK Trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Shakespeare in retirement’ drama, All Is True.
In one point of England’s greatest Bard, the world was his oyster and centuries on many schools still celebrate his work. When has to go home, is he treated like a celebrity? No! Kenneth Branagh‘s drama showcases the poet’s twilight years living in imaginary worlds losing sight of what is real.
Running at 30 seconds longer than last week’s first trailer, we do get a glimpse of some new footage. However, this is not a film that may be ruined for showing new footage. A chance to get an insight into a part of Shakespeare’s life so little is known about. Alongside great actors delivering a side of the bard’s in an entertaining fashion…
The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground, and a devastated Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family.
Haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationships with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as husband and father. His very personal search for the truth uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.
The film stars Ben Kingsley, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Lydia Wilson, Jack Colgrave Hirst, Kathryn Wilder, and Eleanor de Rohan. Kenneth Branagh directs on a Ben Elton script (in his film feature debut).
All Is True will be released in UK and Irish Cinemas from 8th February 2019.Powered by Sidelines
