William Shakespeare (Branagh) comes back to Stratford to find his family estranged from him. Branagh and screenwriter Elton search for the man behind the myth, but lose sight of the genius; there’s no sense of the writer’s intelligence or empathy and only McKellen as the Earl of Southampton brings any life to the proceedings.
