Bland, and tedious throughout.
- All Is True review by RM
""All Is True" explores the human story behind a dark and little known period in the life of William Shakespeare."
The thing about "little known" is you can make up whatever you want, to say this is "All is true" is basically a lie, they could have done far better, Shakespeare Vs vampires? or Abducted by aliens? would have been crass but at least entertaining. But they decided to make a film about nothing very much at all. I was going to say this film was boring but this goes beyond that it's just bland a kind of Elizabethan soap where very little happens apart from day to day life dragging on.
This really is another Branagh self indulgence production, dragging the usual luvvies out of the toy chest.
I'm dismayed that this was penned by Ben Elton, he really is better than this and should have stopped at Upstart Crow, at least being a comedy there was his wit to entertain us, this isn't entertaining, it's the diary of a retired old sod who does what a lot of retirees do, he took up gardening, and boy it was like watching paint dry.
This isn't history, but made up non history. I guess a kind of fake news that no one will be interested in.
