'All Is True' Screens at the Winter 2018 KCET Cinema Series

 

Following a screening of "All Is True," director/actor Sir Kenneth Branagh attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond. The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when the renowned Globe Theatre in London burns to the ground and, devastated by the accident, Shakespeare returns to Stratford. He must face a troubled past and a neglected family haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet as 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.
