Based on some of the known facts of Shakespeare's final years, Branagh speculates on what life might have been like for the bard after he returns to his family in Stratford, after long years of absence. Featuring a stellar cast including Judi Dench and Ian McKellen, this becomes an engrossing tale of family dynamics and overcoming past resentments in order to move forward. With beautiful settings and good attention to detail, I found this speculation to be a realistic satisfying story.
