What parents need to know

Parents need to know that All Is True is a biopic about the later years of William Shakespeare's life; it stars and is directed by Kenneth Branagh. In 1613, following the destruction of the Globe Theatre, Shakespeare (Branagh) retires and returns to his home in Stratford-upon-Avon. But after so many years of him living and writing in London, his family feels neglected, especially his wife, Anne (Judi Dench). And while he's trying to mend relationships at home, Shakespeare is also wrestling with his fame and legacy. Expect some language, sexual references, and heavy themes, but it will likely be fine for mature history or literature buffs.
