William Shakespeare has had his fair share of movies made both about him and his tales. Lo, here comes another one, with Kenneth Branagh’s All Is True.

Described incredibly simply – and rather non-Shakespearian-like – as “a look at the final days in the life of renowned playwright William Shakespeare”, as well as featuring Branagh as the man himself, Judi Dench and Ian McKellen also star.

While receiving a limited US release before 2019 hits so that it’s in contention for awards, All Is True is set to break like the light from yonder window in Australian cinemas come early 2019.
